For Lack Of Confidence - Poem by RIC BASTASA

..i tried to
sound like you,
studying your choice
of words, the way
the metaphors
are constructed,
i studied every line
of your face and
each night
i put on some lines
very much like yours,
...all else fails
i can never be you
i stop pretending
and imagining
that i am better if
i am you,
....suddenly, things
change, here you
are wearing same
colors as mine,
all the while you
also want to
be me.
... such a twist
we should have
talked about
