For my brother!

Itís your saint,
But my beast,
Itís my hunger,
But your feast,

Itís your comfort,
But my shack,
I prefer distance,
While you want her back.

To you a steady shoulder,
To me a cold cheek,
You see strength,
I see weak.

To you an angel,
To me itís callow,
You found love,
And I found shallow.

To me a shade,
To you a home,
Your place of light.
My nightmare zone.

My reality,
Is not yours,
And then again,
Yours too, not mine, of course.

An intriguing striking thoughtsīcomposition.
"Your Saint My Beast" flows on to the wise lake.

Outstanding reading from a magnificent writing.

>>> On the third stanza - fourth line, I read:
"I see weakness."

A fascinating poem - especially to me, since my sister and I have never ever seen things the same way since we were tiny tykes.
Reviewed by Sherry Heim 5/16/2005
It is always interesting to me, how two people can look at the same thing and see something completely different. When it involves a sibling, tolerance and acceptance are the best avenues to follow.
Take care,

Great paradox stew! You are evolving....

Don't know about siblings since I haven't any to compare with. At least you have that.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 5/16/2005
Flashing back and forth so vividly it almost makes the reader ache wanting to find a way to bridge the gap that seems so wide yet siblings are still so close.

Fantastic expression of thoughts!
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 5/16/2005
Sounds like a brilliant expose of familial love and affection to me! Where would we all be without the counterbalance of the "advice we can't possibly take and don't want to hear - but which is in our best interest and always (damn it!) so right"?! Sibling love is surely something else and is just such a curious mix of (dare we say it?!) protection and self-sacrifice. I truly enjoyed this little-covered subject in this crisp and lucid write - thank you. Kate

Sure sums up many away a relationship ends.
One only realises what one has lost, in the aftermouth of its destruction..
