Two Men - Poem by Altair Laahad

Two men reside in me,
One you see and one you may not see,
One is laid as a saint in his sanctuary,
And one climbs up the dome
Stealthily to the secret garden of revelry,
He opens the cage and leaves in rage.

One as a sheep lost within a herd,
Eats and sleeps,
Unaware of the lurking slaughterhouse
And one like a bird or a wolf
Unbridled to the wilderness of sleepless nights;

One, in ritual obedience, leans and hides the face,
Wrists and eyes to the lace;
And one as a horse in rebellion against the underground dungeon,
Kicks the ass of the master

The two men share the ring of comfort and discomfort
In a battlefield with weaponry
Yet to the wound of the other
One retreats and his mate treats
With the kind pity of the shadow to his shade

One man resides in me,
The other man resides in me, too
