Are You You?


Different looks, same walk.
Different voice, same words.
Different lives, same motions
Of affection directed at me.

You two are so discrete, so
Separated in my mind. Yet why
Do I see him in you at each angle?

How could you two possibly
Be connected? For a moment,
You were a shining star, sent to
Bring light to cast out this darkness.
Now I see the horror behind
Your flaming rays of white.

I thought I had forgotten him,
He was never truly a part of me.
But with you lying on my pillow,
Your body slowly breathing under
My covers, I can’t help but to wonder
If he never truly left me and never
Will release me from his hold.

Are you the new him?
