Carbon Copy

you are my carbon copy
  the very fibers that I denied
  I reach forward
  and you withdrew
  declining, rewinding
 spent the rest of the night on the line
   knowing this forestry
  will be leveled
  inhale, exhale
 count down the minutes, seconds
  Were we caricatured?
 Placed these masks on
  and forayed enemies camps
  took no prisoners
    took no lands.
  Should we sleep?
 Or should we creep?
  slowly without backpedaling
 Spies encroaching on foreign land
  conquering, imprinting the sand
 We tried to ram into the gates
 but they wouldn’t give
 our cities gates fell
  conquerors become the conquered
