A Letter To Myself

If I ever saw your face
I would probably loose it in the crowd

We’ve spent a lifetime together
And still
At times I don’t know your name

Your thoughts seem strange to my heart
And yet, they are my own.

Your feelings strong and unrestrained
They scare me like an ocean’s wave
For deep inside I see in them
Emotions that I feel everyday

But I’ve put a rotten lock on them,
For I’m afraid of what they whisper in my ear
Of things they urge me to do.

For I’m not you, so carefree and rash
I am me

And even though I look at you and I see me
I know that you’re not real
A mere illusion for my mind

So similar and dear
And yet so distant and unknown

You are not me for I’m not you
I’m simply me - a mere illusion to the world.
