You and I are one, my dearest friend
But I always ignore your call
I turn away my face, not look you in the eyes
Try to forget your very existence.
Yet, you always come knocking my door
In the darkest moment of my pain
In the spotlight of my reflection
In solitude as my other self.
You are my suppressed sorrows
My unexplained fears
My forgettable foibles
My abandoned Inner Child.
I will never be whole
Unless I learn to love and embrace you
Then you and I will walk together into the light
My forever companion, my shadow self.
