Just Like Me

If in fact we are the same,
then there really is no one to blame.

You are like me,
I am like you.
We are as one,
just made up of two.

Inside of you,
I can see myself.
All my imperfections,
like a crowded shelf.

A reflection in the mirror,
a likeness of the past.
Awaken one morning,
to time flown too fast.

Real love’s touch,
seen only at a glance.
Once in a lifetime,
wish it could be a neverending dance.

All sorts of emotions,
thoughts entangled in your head.
Try to get some of it on paper,
before you go to bed.

This poem I wrote,
has no particular decree.
But I suppose if you got something from it,
then in fact you are,  just like me.

    Hey Chris, this is really a nice write! You entered this in my contest and I think it's great. I just need you to put your name and the date at the bottom, just to be fare to all who entered. It's hard to place a winner if you don't know who wrote what. Ha-ha... Thanks
