residing in a dark alcove,
guarded by demonic angels
fighting for eternity;
the first calls for light
to enter the chamber
and is ready to traverse
along the labyrinth of emotions;
the other one ceases the struggle,
unspoken, move towards
the darkest part of the prison
and glare at his other half-
better or not,
with those dead eyes;
the former shrugs in response
and go to join the worse division;
some time will pass out
and another battle would surge
between the two brothers,
rooted in the same soul.

nice…like yin & yang these twins are opposite sides of the coin…one to the light, one to the dark…this is like the opening of an epic for sure between them….
Yes, they are the yin and yang… they coexist in the same being, who is fighting a never-ending battle with himself..
Thank you for the kind remark. 🙂
There’s a strong opposition here – a lot of people feel this for sure – you’ve set the stage very dramatically. k.
The idea was to create the image of a troubled mind, split into two notions, which are in constant fight with each other, except for the little amount of time when they bow down before the others’ wishes.
The contrast between the two is brought out in the imagery.
Thanks for the kind feedback.
