The Shadow Poet

Whom shall I?
I am the ember which hiding behind the shadow of dawn
I am the sense that abandoned to the dimension of nowhere
I am an empathy who begging for the existence of life

Whom shall I?
I am who deceived in echo
Mumbling as I like
Like a suffer who alienated by the time

I am the boundless identity
I am the instinct of freedom
Neither one could stop me
Nor you could

In the work of art I speak
In the melancholy of song I sing
Humming in a question, may I?
Will the existence of oneself be able to say?

I am standing beyond your common sense
I am the wild soul of yours
Camouflaged in the blurry of ethics
Hey reality, will you guess?

The breaths of subsistence are words

And for the words I born

    This is really good Yanny, the answers float just beyond our comprehension and still somehow the soul understands. Check out my latest poem inspired by your blog.

    I have read two of your pieces so far, and I am already a fan of yours. The first one, "For You I Belong", left me speechless which normally does not happen. This one makes me want to write even more than I do now. I think all poets and writers can see parts of themselves in this piece. OUTSTANDING work! I am glad I was curious about your writing. I have no doubt that I will find many amazing poems from you as I continue to read.
