Faceless Twin

My silent, faceless black twin

Stares back at me with unseeing

Eyes that wish to shed

True tears

Upon the ground we tread.


She would sing if she had

A voice to utter notes

To string together in a sad lament

Never voiced.


Into darkness she would follow

Despite her love of light,

But sadly, she abandons me,

Alone and with uncertainty,

In the darkest night.


If she could speak,

What would she say?

Anything and everything

As long as there are ears

To listen

And hearts

To understand.
