White shadows




Shadows appearing before me

White shadows

Shadows of you

A figure that flows

Waterfalls I bathe under

So heavy on my shoulders

A weight that pushes me to space

That smile of temptation

Beautiful colors that don’t have names

I want to sink in your waters

A stone diving to the bottom

Smoke leaving your mouth

Oh to be that

Tho never leaving

Myself and I

A lost battle

    Beautiful paradoxical images of white shadows and a weight pushing to space. Like colors that have no names this poem in its beauty leaves me without words.
