You More Without Me, Me Less Without You - Poem by Ragy Sandid

Parts of me
Left with you
You warned, pondered, wondered,
And guarded me
You left me the best of two

A child remembers
More of how it is used to be
A child stamps, ramps, damps
And wraps the future
Much too quickly

A bigger one recalls
A world that became a galaxy
With definite, infinite, deliberate
And determined destinations
A world of no controls

Then united
They become a man within a man
Each one has a stand, demand,
Reprimand
They fight it

Then through
Some window
They see the same view
But the leaves on the trees
Hide the rays and ways of the sun
One sees it bright, the other dull and done
But the better man pulls at the one eyed
To make him see the best of the other side
A shrug of the shoulder, a sigh, 'I tried'

But once you died
You took the part that tried and left the part that sighed
I know you felt me when I cried
I'm better now. But better without you?
That's the part where I lied.
