Two of me

There are two of me
over the skeleton
covered by
meat and skin
wrapped in jungle of veins
somewhere there,
Never in sync
one uses blood as ink
while other
is afraid to think
scared to come out
in open atmosphere,
They use same eyes
yet see different things
and at times
one acts blind
when
other’s eyes pierce within,
They chew
each other’s bones
to detach their links
stitching their territory
they can do anything
and this is how
no one wins
this battle within.
