Twins of life

The heart is numb
Mind rambles on
Eyes remain silent
Mouth speaks for long

Claustrophobic in a crowd
Swarmed all alone
Ears listen nothing
Heartbeats create mayhem

Not all alone
Yet seeking someone
Light does not enlighten
Darkness calmly enfolds

Nothing moves forward
Life rushes by
Mere spectator no more
Live it up, will I?

Perplexed Gemini speculates
Twin of emotions
Liberated Gemini knows
One choice to make
