Perfectly worded. It is a wonder why people will choose to divide themselves. Perhaps it is a fun game of pretend while it lasts. Excellent work, Pryde.

Thank you, KL:)
Similar to the "serpent eating its own tail" to represent "time", what kind of two headed monster is yours? And what would it represent? And the line between good and evil, that you had noted beneath the title, to me does not exist. There is good, and bad, the nature of the wilderness or chaos, but evil should not be. It is created beyond the natural causalities of the balance of all things, and just my opinion, made by the intelligence of men or minds that have forsaken Creation and seek to destroy it. This two headed beast that you have poetically in imagery, queried us to wonder at, is both its own victor and demise. Still it does not answer any question but does tell the truth (about the human condition). Very thought provoking and cerebral. Brava!

This is very thought provoking. We all struggle with inner turmoil and need to learn to tame the beast inside or it will consume us. Love is the answer - we all seek it, desire it...yet does anyone really understand it or allow IT to consume us in order to transform ourselves into the beautiful creatures we should be? Your poem is short on words but long on meaning :) Well done!

A lurking mental diaspora crowding the mind, a captivation that's sensationally haunting; yet, there's a solace, a compassionate red sea to cross. Anand Bose from Kerala.

I ate myself once and now there is nothing left to love... oh well, perhaps that's for the better... but I will miss writing poetry the most and maybe getting a kiss at midnight while dancing with the moon... ;0)
