I Am Human Too This is a poetry thread where I will post my thoughts as poetry and try to mend all my broken bits. I hope if you, too, have broken bits, that you may glean some wisdom from my experience. After all, we are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike. Thank you for your time and consideration. Doppelganger by Isaac James Flores It feels like there are two of me. I am my own Cenote Angelita where fresh water meets blackening sea. I may swim free of cares, but I am not truly free. Never would I dare, to explore the increasing salinity. To dive below the halocline is to be destroyed. Or, pretend that I am fine, a silken veneer, a ploy. The waters above, and the sea of salted tears herald the end of my previous joy, my greatest fear. It all began with a thought, as all things in life do. I cannot retrace it; I forgot. I’m done and I’m through. It feels like there are two of me. The dichotomy is one that terrifies completely.
