Casted By None

A shadow casted
From no physical source
Mirrored by none
Seemingly formed mentally
Mirrored from feeling
Mirrored from thought

Ough to be
The two senses coincide
Among one another
To create this awkwardness
Peculiar indeed
Abscent of physical source
That in which
Cast this shadow
Has it risen?
Through disparity
Will it disintgrate?
Into nothingness
Will it remain?
Remain to reveal its cater
How has this sight derived?
At what time did it materialized?

A shadow casted
From no physical source
It travels along side
Will it be a burden?
Is it an echo of my life's past?
Is it an echo of my life's future?
Is it an actual present event?
I know no knowledge of
Is it that my mind is faulty at present?
I will investigate to the full extent
What has prompted this interferance?

Mirrored by none
Seemily formed mentally
Mirrored from feeling
Mirrored from thought

Am I asleep from reality
Am I asleep?
Is this incident happening?
Is this incident happening?
Am I asleep?
is this an actual shadow?
Shadowed by my subconscious
No physical evidence
Am I asleep?
No physical evidence
Am I asleep?
No physical evidence
Am I asleep?
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up!
Wake up! ! wake up!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
