    One body, one soul two minds
    Trying hard to coexist

    Light & dark reflecting one another's heart

    Split personality?

    A complex state of mind?

    Can't tell if I'm coming in

    Or going out

    Have I lost my mind?

    And then found another?

    I cry I laugh

    Discontent

    In a world of chaos

    Invented a stronger me

    To handle you

    Created a woman

    That knows her heart

    Controls her own destiny

    Whose world

    Is complete

    Whose thoughts are rationed by intelligence

    One body, one soul two minds
    Trying hard to coexist

    In a world of confused love

    This other me

    Wears a mask

    Of solitude

    Who relies on me?

    When I cannot rely on myself.

    Who carries me?

    Through the times when I cannot carry myself.

    Who Loves me?

    When it seems love is a distant memory.

    The answers lies within her

    My weakness is her strengths

    My doubts motivate her to avoid oblivion

    Do I hold her hand?

    Or does she hold mine?

    One body, one soul two minds

    One Love
