opposite twins

opposite twins

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.

  1. 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. 🙂


    • 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.


Here is where you tell me something...
