I Write These Poems As If I Am Far Away From Myself - Poem by Shalom Freedman

I write these poems as I am far away from myself
But I am not
The poems come out of some part of me
I do not always know exists

It has been a long life
Most of it has been forgotten by me
No one in the long distance
Will remember or care for any of it

I write these poems as if I am far away from myself

And one day like myself everything else will be so distant from itself
It will not even know
It no longer exists-

    This is a strange feeling - I think we step back to get a better look at ourselves, but while stepping back, we are never disconnected. And how lucky for us that we cannot be aware of our own non-existence. (Report) Reply
