Twinning in absentia

Pink or beige?
I see you behind,
through light of my mirror,
Holding onto me through life’s strings,
Sharing appearance and possessions alike,
Glittery eyebrows, shiny earrings, shared interests,
Differences, similarities everything alike,
Between that day and today,
And yet all that I see now,
I see a pale reflection of you behind,
Through light of my mirror,
Far away living through a mere memory,
Twinning in absentia.
