The
Shadow
Of Myself
~
I
am
the shadow
of myself cloaked
in dark mystery
visionless eyes
that do not see
the light
hooded
hoardes
of thoughts
confront me
in the night
seeking to find
where I can
hide from
things
that
hide
in
me
~
~
~
the
shadow
of myself
     casting
       yet
         another
           shadow
           of
              me

Marge(y) this is dynamic!

I love the format, and echo myself so much...that penchant I think we all have for hiding.

Well done, my friend!

Thank you for finding a little of yourself in this.

Elizabeth, my friend -
So glad you enjoyed it.
And thanks for the great big compliment.

I have a little shadow
who didn't mind helping me.
She's a moderator
just as she should be.

Couldn't get it centered,
but she put it on the line.
Up in time ...
thanks PoetDeVine.


Many thanks ... ~Marge~

I get that "how many times your can see a mirror in a mirror" effect with this poem.  Intriguing work, to say the least.  Good poem.

Local Rebel -
Thank you.  Now you've inspired me
to stretch my shadow !


A
shadow
of
a
shadow
r e a c h i n g
out to me
Trying to
capture
the
elusive
set
free
me
changing
rearranging
s t r e t c h i n g
to find
where I
begin
and
my shadow
leaves
off
to
become
the
other
me
s  t  r  e  t  c  h  i  n  g
we are
one
in
me

Thank you so much.
I enjoy penning all of my poetry,
but I really, really enjoyed this.
You are so kind, my friend.
