Half of a vanished whole
I was born with curly hair,
a bubbly laugh
and a blue eyed stare.
I was born with freckles on my nose,
always a need to know
and a reason to share.
I was born as part of a vanishing twin,
always preferring to be by myself
and always knowing I wasn't alone.
I reabsorbed my other twin, the
chromosomal abnormality, a blighted ****
if you will.
I put my duality down to this abnormality,
yet, always wanting to know,
my curiosity always on show.
I wonder why I came to be?
With the other me fading away.
I look for others with my freckles, blue eyes and grin.
I've never found her or him.
I was born a half of a whole,
maybe it's why sometimes I'm light, other times dark.
My twin left its mark, but, I think I'm the dark half.
