Shapeshifter

Rating: 5.0
Shapeshifter...
Who are you? ?

You recreate yourself
As the need arises...
Putting on display
An assortment of disguises
Filling needs within our souls
As only you can do...
Shifting shape with a plan
And following your cue

Shapeshifter...
Who are you? ?

Are you poet...rogue...or gentleman?
Does one man's fancy become your sin?
And what of truth...
Is that the truth that you cleverly create...
Or is it truth which you yourself
Must accept as fate?

Shapeshifter...
Who are you? ?

Are you wise beyond compare?
Do you grasp at straws...
And cling to threads...
Of a life you cannot share?

Shapeshifter...
Who are you? ?

Are you dust in wind...
Salt of ocean...
Fresh dew in morning?
Are you bird upon the branch?
Or are you... simply stated...
A wolfe in lamb's clothing?

Shapeshifter...
Who are you? ?

...And when you reappear...
Will you be friend?
Or be you foe?
Will this be the end...
The final show...
Or just an intermission...

Shapeshifter...
Who are you? ?

Sometimes the metaphor is creepier than the myth. Not all shapeshifters are angels in disguise, sometimes you see demons, once you squint your eyes. Good to see you writing again, Dee! -chuck
