Personal Questions

What do you think?
Nothing.  Again, nothing.
I am as colorless as clear water,
as reflective as a mirror, as empty as a room
everyone just left.
What do you feel?
Nothing.  Once more, nothing.
I am as passive as a stone,
as fluid as a stream,
as shallow as a saucer...
Why do you lie?
I do not lie --
you see my exposed shell,
the walls inside which I
have become dessicated, shrunken,
hard, withdrawn --
an oyster, a clam, a snail --
a distracting polished whelk.

    Just lovely! And so true of most people - silence is preferred because answering means more questions. I love the image of an empty room in by whereas it is vacant there is a possibility of it being occupied again. Well written free verse this!

    I like the idea that as "colorless" as one may be they in turn tend to reflect the beauty around them, often never knowing. A very deep piece of writing. Stephen.
