That's the sort of thing that always comes to mind for me too when I look at the title of this one.

Who is the writer of writeness?
Who is the feeder of feedness?
Who is the wooer of wooness?
Why am I clicking of clickness?
Why am I reading of readness?

(Holy hokey, Batman! I think I just wrote a poem!)

You post as if being married ends the loving? Sad....when true. So.....don't keep us in suspense. Who/what is the succubus?

Okay, that's technically true, but "lover" very well implies unmarried lover.

One can know OF the knower, but I do not believe anyone can ever know the knower.
And, unless I am wrong, it should be ...by whom.

Knowledge is known...via images seen.

But the Knower the seer of images seen, has never been seen.
The knower, seer, is invisible. It's not-knowing.

The who cannot be answered by the sound of the voice. The only answer that can be possible is silence...silence asks.
