In Two Minds

I didn’t see him coming.

He was here with me before,

I knew, and then, instantly

became my closest friend.

We went everywhere as twins,

through thick and thin, hill and glen.

In my mind he is here now.

When he is away I call

and he returns.  We are one

and yet not. We co-exist

separately forever.

But then, when the chips are down

he deserts me.  His advice

no longer there, alone I vault

hurdles to the next being.

He comes back as if nothing

really happened. I say, “Glad

to see you bud, you take care.”

I mean to scream, ‘Where were you

 when I needed you!”
