We do not need
A neuro device
Electrodes and wires
Our two individual
Minds, hearts, and bodies
To one entity.
We already existed as one;
We existed as halves
That fit congruently.
While he makes up the right side
I make up all the left side.
And for those of you
Who have passed biology
Would understand that
The left side cannot function
Without the right part of the brain
And vice versa.
We are compatible.
Virtually, realistically, physically,
Mentally, and emotionally compatible.
But we needed some kind of drift
An impulse to drive the blood
From his ventricle to mine,
A build up of events
A build up of flooding emotions
A collision of hopelessness,
That would revive our dying souls,
That would activate our compatibility.
But I have never seen him.
I would need a mirror to do so.
The world that we live in
Do not approve of mirrors.
Even glass that gives off reflections
Just when my self
Has truly become complete,
Life is determined
To drag us both to the filthy ground.
But he knows
How much I love the sky
And he refuses to be pushed down,
So he raises our chin up
And starts working from scratch
To build a city of our preference
To build a city full of mirrors,
Where we can finally
See each other
And light that black flame
And color it red, orange and gold.
