“Shadow Poetry“

By bpathos

Where I couldn't look
A shadow was
Where no light took
A shadow does

Where something is
It's shadow is not
Where the poet stands
A poem is not

A poem just out of sight
Is seeing the unknown
A sun at midnight
And reporting it shown

The truth standing naked
Or maybe it's shadow
If I'm awakened
What do I know

In the poem what I seek
And probably all I know
Within I get a peek
Of what I hope to show

In the end we hope we are
What we tried to be
And at the end we are
Who and what we see
