Your Shadow Lied to You

Standing against your will
looking into a mirror.

What do you see
Yourself
Your twin
Your ghost
Or your slave

Let her leave now –
she lied
She’s no longer worthy
to sketch you behind the light

  1. I really liked your poem, your words combined with the image makes it hauntingly beautiful! I really loved the last verse! That sums it up perfectly! My brother thank you for following me and your many visits, i will be doing the same for you! Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you so much, Wendell! I wasn’t so sure how my audience would take the poem when I posted the poem. The ‘likes’ and then your generous comment tells me to keep writing.

      Yes brother (such a kind recognition!) I love and will continue to visit your blog. I feel fulfilled every time I read your post.

  2. Powerful, haunting, and stunning–and seemingly meant for me, like so many other folks, I’m sure. I love how spare this poem is–like the deep, inexorable beating of the drum telling me, indeed, to let her go…. Thank you.

  3. Indeed, it is a close cousin of ‘Mirrored’. Thank you for giving me the link. I shall include it in my post. Loved your poem here.
