The Inside

your eyes have been younger
thinking about something other than just the ordinary
your hair has seen better times
back then
richer
something that you were proud of perhaps

and you still groom
holding on to this perceived youth
granting an inward look
a symbiosis
indication
that finally we are of an equal mind
I regret to have ever seen you like this
and you have never understood that regret
never will

we’ll go on
until you are very sick
or I
and I will take care of you
or you of me
depending of course

and I will certainly miss you when you are gone
even though
when your brother left
I did not think I could care much for you
regardless of what that meant
about the inside
of me
