More Alike Than Different — Abstract Art by kenne

More Alike Than Different

Look at us,
we look alike —
similar lines,
curves,
colors,
so much in
common.

We came together
seeking
to be one, 
symmetry of 
differences
reflected
in the other
as a circle of one. 

Connected by
the rhythm
of wave lines,

slowly becoming
lost
in a moving maze —
drowning
in a sea of
Self-indifference.

Look again,
our eyes looking
beyond the other —
connections weakening
in our

once upon a time
circle of one.

Our circle of one,
now a reflection,
a hurtful delusion
of what was,
leaving only
a few 
lines
connecting
the symmetry of
pleasure and pain,
vanished as a whole.

Fabric
of the whole
lost,
no longer
a balance
between
pleasure 
and pain,
now a distant
Dylan sound,
“Behind
every beautiful thing,
there’s some
kind of pain.”
