Fault Line

You and I are very similar
Our differences very slight
When I raise my left hand at you
You respond with your right

I wink at you with my right eye
You wink back with your left
Sometimes we are ambidextrous
Both sides equally as deft

When I see you it’s just like
I can see a better me
Looking at you I can sense that
You can teach me how to be

Is there someone right behind you
Are you more than I can see
If I strike you and you shatter
Will your pieces still be me

Can you hear me when I call you
Your lips move just like mine
The piece of glass that separates us
It’s a chasm - a fault line
