My Doppelgänger. Read Count : 5

Category : Poems

Sub Category : N/A

No matter what these damn walls that are tainted with the ones hidden in the dark corners, I will escape this maze no matter what I have to face. 


As their voices scream out all my troubles I will never let it break my spirit. 

I begin to conjure up a plan realizing I began to pace...this just might be judgment day. 


They must not see that, they must not see that fear in me. I can say it over and over when I look in the mirror but it’s just an endless mind game to distract my perception of reality.


Only to lose focus and turn a corner precisely placing me face to face with the leader of the shadow people that have been lurking; 

my doppelgänger, whose words are nothing but cursed. 


I am brave, that was all I got for my little self pep talk. They will crumble down due to the fact that my free will is to be forever strong; impenetrable. 


That is I, Those Meaningful Words. 

That is him, Those Reaping Cursed Words. 


I’m the fallen angel here to make sure those I protect never come across the one speaking in tongues reaping the innocent inflicted and cursed. 


That is I, Those Meaningful Words; 

Forever. 


That is him, Those Reaping Cursed Words; 

The reflection I see everyday i look in the mirror....


Inevitably shapeshifting without even knowing, that’s been quite eye opening once I began realizing.


So naive and gullible enough to believe i was impenetrable only to fall like the Greeks when the Trojans breached their fortress, subsequently changing the course of history. 


I, Victor Herrera, the one some may know as Those Meaningful Words has been invaded. 


A wounded fool who is no longer impenetrable.

I’m bleeding yet smiling; I whisper under my breath quietly, 


“The only one that defeated me, was me.” 


Signed, 

Those Meaningful Words.
