"Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle." - Lewis Carroll

i want to tend to a labyrinth with a select group of friends in the backyard of our repurposed castle in france and write mediocre poetry about love and other lies.

Let me know how I can improve. Keep in mind that I wrote this while very sleepy, so it may not be very good.

let me walk these long-forgotten deer trails
ferns relishing the loosened pebbles
basking in a late afternoon sun
which escapes our mortal world
as the moon precedes a gentle winter's evening
a glistening premonition of this umbra
which oppresses its night creatures
though in truth becomes only another shadow;
and, while i walk here,
let me feel your breath caressing the nape of my neck
ever fighting never
ebony against ivory
gold linking silver
a torrent of sorts as your self and your presence
occupies every luminous corner of conscience and consciousness
and your song becomes mine
This is a late-night rambling poem, and I don't even know whether or not it makes sense from a reader's perspective. If it doesn't, consider this: walking hand-in-hand with a lover in a wintry forest as the sun begins to set.

    "a torrent of sorts as your self and your presence
    occupies every luminous corner of conscience and consciousness
    and your song becomes mine" ahh there's something vaguely familiar, in a sense, about the way this poem is crafted. brilliant imagery and diction as always!
