We came into this world together.
First me, and second you.
In my mind a mirror appeared
When people started asking "who is who?"
The mirror was not really a mirror per se,
But a see-through glass pane
It retained the name of mirror because
It functioned just the same
When my hand moved, your hand moved
As if I was looking at a reflection.
We always moved with each other
Because of our connection.
In our world, we were always together,
And Loneliness was always alone.
It always kept its distance from us
Until the first rock was thrown
The first rock was an interest
That only I obtained.
The rock broke a shard off the mirror
And Loneliness's attention was gained.
The broken shard was just large enough
To allow us to glimpse through.
And when we saw each others' eyes we exclaimed,
"We are not one person, we are two!"
From that point on we had one desire
That we wanted to possess.
It was to shatter the mirror between us
And say hello to Loneliness.
Using many different means we cracked
The mirror bit by bit.
We wanted to find Loneliness
And get a taste of it.
For 17 long years we labored away
Until the mirror was rubble.
We looked at each other fully until I said,
"Was finding Loneliness worth the trouble?"
"I guess we'll find out," you said
As you went your own separate way.
I went my own way as well,
And Loneliness seemed to stay.
