Halfs Of Me - Poem by Eric Karns

half is warm,
half is cold,
half you cant see,
it only can be told.

what you cannot see,
you cannot hold.

My half holds doors,
he's the friend always there,
for he must make room,
for the side you could not bare.

he must make more room,
for his side that does not care.

few have seen,
what lies on the other side,
the laws i choose to follow,
the laws i choose not to abide.

the emotion that i follow,
the emotion that i have denied.

i know my other half,
better than he knows me,
he tries to make,
what i will never be.

the evil he tries to make,
the evil only i can see.

he knows no bounds,
he stops at no light,
but my undeniable strength,
he will not try and fight.

his strength is not my strength,
but his is darker than night.

I fear him everyday,
but I.... he does not fear,
his soul is black,
and mine is clear.

the deepest of black,
far inside me but always near.

i have tried to shake him,
but i cant make it work,
he lets me know through silence,
he will continue to lurk.

he waits in silence,
with a more than evil smirk.

my fear for him,
keeps me on my toes,
what he does to me,
nobody knows.

what he does to me,
would terrify any foes.

he does not see,
how much i take from him,
only using his hate,
could i ever be so grim.

only using his hate,
can i keep him on the rim.

i have already beat him,
but i do not let him see,
that i need to use him,
for what i must be.

that i must use him,
so i can be free.

    A very interesting address to yourself I guess.
    Staking out your territory. It reminded me of
    a battle between two souls to hold the same ground.
