A Poem by alienated.aquarius

swallowed at birth


Sometimes I feel as though

I was meant to have a twin

And I swallowed her in our mother’s stomach

So she could always keep me company.

That could be bad company. I never enjoy my lunch when it talks back to me.

This poem is startling, I'm trying to figure out if it's sweet sad or creepy. I think the last like would sound good if you said "so she could always be with me" instead of keep me company, seems like it would have better flow.

i can writers we definitely have two selves...the writer one, and the other one...i know for me, the writer isn't always there any time i want to conjure him up...he comes and go with the muse...and therefore i have identified him by his own name of jacob erin-cilberto...
it's just how it is.

not sure what to make of this one lol

seems like it could have a wealth of meaning
acute use of personifying

clever and unique write

This is a weird idea & I like it when a writer probes concepts that are uncommon. I have no idea how this feeling might occur to someone, but I'm sure there will be many who can relate! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
