How is it humanly possible that I still feel
Such a sisterly connection to you
After all these years?
Looking at the television screen
In sheer disbelief
That the girl in the Russian hat and trench coat was me
Two whole years ago
And that the girl in the pink China dress
With the fluffy, pink boa and crimped hair
Moved away a whole two years ago
How can it be that time stole you away?
With its greedy talons
Time swooped down and snatched you up
Took you and dropped you off somewhere else
A place without a trace of me
To remind you of the time we shared
A clean slate
And I'd like to think you have a few more colors on your palette
Thanks to me
But as far as where I am goes
I'm stuck here
Littered with memories and mistakes
Scars turned useful
Scars in the process of becoming numb
Scars still throbbing with pain
Even some blatantly open wounds
Major arteries sliced
So much of what I'm surrounded with
Is a reflection of you
The non-biological sisters we are
And still are, I hope
Tell me something
When you hear one of our favorite songs on the radio
Do you think of me?
Do you long to be with me to share that moment
Where you are struck by the drug that is nostalgia?
Can you believe it was a whole three years ago
When we first met?
Can you believe it was a whole two years ago
When we said our final goodbye?
