We are One, But I am Two

by Cooper   Jan 15, 2009

Shotgun wedding,
a mannequin
of similarities in vanity
sleeping with, arousing,
every alternate humanity
in me.

I've got to marry these
remains of harmony
waiting in distance to come true
for another little piece of me;

A coffin bleeds from the sky
we all jabbed my eyes
to balance out the pressure ...

Sewn to my sanity,
killed the devil
with apologies;
we're like brothers, you and me,
ironic, supposed lovers,
that you are me and I am you?

Hold to me for one more day,
they'll carve
the scars away,
separate the disfunction
and balance out the religion;
ironic, supposed prayers,
that we begged like Jesus 'til the sun came down ...

If I choose to be here,
in morphing one of me and you,
I don't want to see what's left of two ...

*** The thought of choosing to be sane again, if just to remember that it's all insane .... ***

    Does insanity have a real true deffinition? I don't think it could, because what is insane to one might be perfectly sane to another.

    Oops, sorry about that. On to your amazing piece. There is an excellent choice of words, in some cases it was slightly perplexing, but one that has been figured out the rest is an easy read no problem. But those perplexing parts give this piece some of what I am assuming to be your very own character. The author's voice is strong and clear in this piece. The emotion inside of this piece has some magnificent peaks as well as some dissapointing downfalls. There is some terrific imagery in this piece, though all of the other elements seem to mask it. Overall I love this piece, because it is not only creative, but it feels like it came from not only you but your very soul as well. This piece could be taken very bluntly or very personally, depending on the attitude of each individual reader. All in all, I believe this piece is a perfect example of what poetry should be. I gave this a 5/5, but I wish I could have given it more like a 10/5.

    "we begged like Jesus til' the sun cam down"

    And after it went down?
    and the question of humanity.
    Yes, liberating insanity.
