DIVIDED

by Greg Mackie

.

I met myself on the street today,

I was looking rather pale;

My eyes were red,

my hair unwashed,

I didn’t look too well.

>>>>

I tried to find the courage,

To ask me what was wrong;

I’ve known myself

for quite some time now –

We used to get along.

::::

He told me he was suffering,

from choices that I’d made.

I said you’re an adult now,

and you’ve made your bed,

and in your bed, you’ll lay.

>>>>

He screamed at me in anger;

I’d never seen me this way.

His cold blue eyes

were so full of hate,

I had to turn and look away.

>

He said,

If love can move a mountain,

if love solves everything,

Why am I so lonely?

Why did you give in?

.

I couldn’t find an answer;

I couldn’t even speak –

I watched me walk

around the corner,

and I’ve never felt so weak.

.

Will I ever see myself again?

Will I ever be complete?

And how many other divided souls,

Shall I meet,

On this busy street?

.
