Taurus, 18, trying to clear the fog in my head.

Who are YOU when no one is looking? Tricky question, right? Let me know what you think of this please, I like this one but would like to know any opinions or criticism.

Who are you when no one is looking?

November 26, 2018


Who are you when no one is looking?
I am the space between the pages
Where the ink does not lick
Syllables un-sung
Nice to touch 
But never to have.

Who are you when no one is looking?

A meadow when I am wholly alone 
Legs and hair overgrown
Neither taut nor toned
A whirlwind of words
Like trying to tether a typewriter in a tornado
A relic of bruises and scars, 
Lilac seeping violet
Washes away amber bleeding crimson, 
An abandoned city atop my skin
Paradoxically a war zone 
Reluctantly, my home.

    @TheDreamer thank you so much that is a very lovely compliment for me as I have been trying to improve and expand on the imagery within my poems, as I feel I don't go into as much depth with it as I could so thanks so much :)
