Lost in time 
No color is seen
No rays of sunlight
Yet it's shadow gleams -
Casting a prism
But of its own?
The form is obvious
But the identity unknown
A wall full of color reflecting a dark soul?
Masking it’s faith - Deceiving its foe

    Self identity ("what am I") and ("lost in time") seem to be something that we all feel and struggle with at some point in time. I particularly like the notion of a "shadow gleams casting a prism...?" I think this is the heart of you.

    Interesting riddle, Larry, and I would venture to say as i read it I thought of a painting .. like the Picture of Dorian Grey.. or a lost entity...who cannot find their way as to which side they want to belong to.. don't know if this is what u had in mind but only my poetic thoughts... would u let me know the answer or must we wait for one to solve it? thankxxx for your comments on my poetry also.. much appreciated..
