I’m A Shade… >> - Poem by Tsira Gogeshvili


I’m a shade,
I follow my body
Like a ghost…

I’m a shade,
I eye myself
From the shadow.

I’m a shade,
And I breathe
With the noose
Of obligation,

I’m a shade,
“And why does my heart
Sing to you? ”
That’s the question…

    This is a fascinating poem (a love poem methinks) , neatly structured and tinged with irony. You leave space for the reader to make his/her own assumptions. Fine penning. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    And why does my heart
    Sing to you? ”
    * ** *
    Neurons sent signals to your heart
    meaning builded shapes
    and dim sighted the chant
    A shade of clolor lights your shadow
