If I speak of myself
do I speak of you also?
Is experience universal?
Do we have the same
highs, the same lows,
but at different intervals?
Have we each laughed
just as hard, or cried
so softly that
no one could hear us?
Or have our hearts
been broken by both
joy and sadness?
And have we both
looked in the mirror
and on the same day thought
the exact opposite?
throwing the hairbrush,
“I can’t do anything with my hair!”
or, “damn, I don’t even need it.”
Because if I speak of myself,
I must speak of you also,
where I and you has always
equalled – two.

    I like the way you channelized your thoughts to highlight & emphasize the various radical situations that might emerge in a love bond. Thanks for sharing such a heart-warming poem! According to your convenience please do read some of my writings would love to know what you think about them. :)
