My Old Friend - Poem by Michael Patrick Hunt

I am the wraith
In your misty eyes
Vagarious entity within
I metamorphasize
A vagrant shadow
I besiege your dreams
A cascading whisper
In the realm of dissonance
Though I remain unspoken
Begotten of a day no more
Awaiting your return
When we come face-to-face
Yet again,
My dear old friend

    Thank you again! My thought behind this was to show the contrast itself. When I wrote this, I imagined the darker side of a person speaking. I used my dear old friend because he was really talking to himself. By when we come face-to-face yet again, I meant during the time when a person experiences the darker emotions or desires such as anger, jealousy, lust, etc. I also wanted to show that these tendencies are always within a person, thus using phrases such as a vagrant shadow.

    That's a bit of a contrast... Or is it? Watch out! This is a great poem. You use the English language well and your point so deftly made! I must admit you made me turn to the dictionary to confirm the nuances and accuracy of your word choices. Well done. Why no punctuation?

    As for the punctuation, I rarely use it in my poetry because I think its absence gives the reader to interpret the message in different ways.
