The Other Me
Sun goes down, pole light on.
I take a stroll to the pool,
But what do I see...
"The other me."
A boy, five-foot-six, grin on his face.
Behind him, the faces of those he deceived.
A pile of trophies covered in tears.
The placards addressed to "the other me."
The end can come much quicker than we think.
Faces become blurred and family becomes
Unrecognizable. After this, memories keep
Oneself contained. The individual stops
All support for oneself: no desire for food
Nor water. They do what they can, but
We know the end result. One week passes, the
Family meets and takes the long ride behind the hearse,
To their final resting place.
