The Two Enemies Inside My Flesh And Bones - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

inside me
there are two people
always
arguing

there is this
black horse and
a white horse
and there is only
one carriage
to speak of

everyday they
quarrel over a lot
of nonsense
as i call it
but i can do nothing
but listen

after all
they are all essential
parts of
my being

one day
someone so beautiful
sits in one of those
chairs
in the cafe

sipping coffee
and
steals some
looks at me
which
despite the distance
sort of
touches me into
responding with
a smile
as hot as her coffee
on that
very cold
rainy day

the two enemies
inside
suddenly
for a moment
stop their
word war
and teases me
to stand
cheer up
and go near
that
thing of beauty

we start a nice
conversation
i give my number
and there is this
promise
to see each other
again

the two enemies
who live inside my
flesh and bones
finally
end their stripe

united they
say. ' go, go go,
go
for love! '

and then
i think, and i hope it
will last

peace has since then
reigned
between them.
