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?
