Hey, I wrote this a few days ago and wondered if maybe you guys/gals would enjoy…
Let me go.
You are me.
What is my name?
It is a lie.
Why do you do this?
Why do you resist?
Because I am not you;
What do you want with me?
You and I are made the same,
Flesh and bone and blood and brain.
Live for me and I’ll live in you,
Share with us the life that you knew:
Memories of home and hope and hearth,
Fears of facing off the howling dark.
They are gone, and you remain. Think a bit;
Now at last alive to life, you miss it?
I? I am a monument to all your sins.
I know all, and so your punishment begins:
See the lives of others and live within their hell;
I in turn will feel your pain, all of theirs as well.
Come and share your mind with me, a mind of living grave.
Come and share a world with me, the world to me you gave.
Now the gate has been unlatched, headstones pushed aside;
Corpses shift and offer room, a fate you must abide.
