Another Me - Poem by Leslie Alexis

My heart tears
Even as my eyes bleed
With another
My soul cannot bear
Even as my body
You cannot see,
Or maybe, just maybe
He became me:
My life was transferred -
My eyes and hands given to him.
He touches you, the way
I used to:
His touch - My touch!
He kisses you, the way
I used to:
His kiss - My kiss!
Even as melancholy
destines that I feel your touch
and your kiss,
Perturbs the senses
And all I feel
Is sorrow,
For I know
my tomorrow
is spent without you,
My sky is no longer blue.
I call the blackest clouds
that brings rain to my soul's eyes
To become a storm.
I needs the rain and wind
To wash
The memories of you

    ‘He became me: ’…indeed to be cherished…

    ‘Reality /Perturbs the senses…’ …it is virtual not reality…

    Nice metaphors…
