Me an' You

Me an' You

A Story by Lightfalls

Written for my sister, a few things that make me smile


My sister and I balance each other out perfectly
I am sympathetic, she is realistic
I am a dreamer, she is logical and makes things happen

I find things, she packs
I shop, she carries the bags
I say something funny, she says something funny back
I think of ideas, she tells me how I can (or cant!) reach them :)  

We don’t agree on some things, but it works out better that way
I love popcorn jelly beans, and she likes tuti fruity,  we both agree that jelly beans are good, and no need to fight over the flavors

She wakes up most night yelling that there are spiders in the room, I wake up most nights yelling at her to stop!

She is a photographer, I am the one who yells "get a picture of this, get a picture of that!"

She possesses an understanding of the world that is far deeper than anything I can create in my romanticized idealistic mind


I am a bit of a romantic, she doesn’t want a knight in armor, no "retard in tin foil" (as she says!) can ever capture her rapturous heart

I swear if we weren’t related, became opposite genders, and were somehow married, we'd be one of those perfect couples, LOL!!!

We never hug!! But don't have to, or even want to somehow words even unspoken ones, are better then any hug

We can feel from any distance when the other is upset

We don’t live for each other,
but somehow through each other
and despite each other too!

A love hate, good bad, light dark, relationship, or lack-thereof

Live, let live -or kill if need be!

I do my own thing, she does hers, but we're together all the time

Each assuming one role, then switching just as randomly,
It's a living, breathing
Pseudo something,
Yet totally based in reality  

We fight, we laugh
We look at something, and see opposite sides -but always the same thing



I want to run away, she will try to stop me,
And if that fails, come with me

I am a lonely, sobbing, pathetic mess, she sighs and says ONE thing that totally snaps me out of it

I reach for the stars, she reminds me that there are plenty right in our own backyard

We have an invisible pact, it became real somehow the first time I realized she was my sister, my friend
Because though I don’t remember that day, I realize that only means it's been real for nothing short of eternity....
and though it's unspoken with words, it's more real then any paper contract

That is

Written with our minds,
Full of "what if's" but concrete in its reality,
And it is signed with nothing less then sincerity

"If you were to...."

"Then I would.…”

“I promise"

-Me an You!

sweet, strange in some places, but that's the beauty of a creative mind and a playful soul. Much harmony can be found when the right notes are played on life's piano

I'm not about being tied down and limited with words. Words are just a shadow of life anyways, and only used because they simplify things. Sometimes there are things far, far beyond words, that you .. more..
