The Other You

You were alive, but dreaming.
I saw you, another you, floating
Above and to the right, and reaching,
And I heard a voice like yours, but different
And I was frightened because two worlds were
Converging in a single, inexplicable moment.
I told the Devil, the old deceiver that
I was not afraid, that I was tired,
And I laughed at him, at you.

Thanks for checking out my poem.

Did I tell you I wrote a novel? You can also donate some of your hard-earned dollars down below—that’s money to me, for free!
