Duet of Reflections

Who is she?
What will she look like?
Will she be sexy
Will she be stern?

Is this me?
Am I too dressed up?
Will I be dressed up
Too much like her?

Who is she?
What will she act like?
Will she be bitchy
Will she be shy?

Should I believe her?
Tell her my secrets?
If she is family
Should I be blind?

First time in a lifetime
Finally I meet
My mysterious twin

Is this girl
So like me
So different
Really my sister?
Is she a friend?

When we meet
How will I greet her?
Will she embrace me
Will we shake hands?

When we talk
What will we speak of?
Does she have style?
Has she known love?

When we meet
How will it touch me?
Will it be creepy
Will there be a bond?

I’m a geek
Does she watch the same shows?
Does she hate my shows?
Will she hate me?

No more speculation
End of the questions
Proof of the fear

That first fateful meeting
Seconds away now
Heart in my eardrums

The moment is here

I dedicate this poem to Susan and Diane of El Goonish Shive, who seem like mirror-images of each other but haven’t quite met each other yet.

Would I had the skill to set it to music!
