BODIES and SHADOWS

You think and see how strange it is It is no mirror It is no body It is just a cast of you mostly longer than your form, sometimes sizeable, other times shorter Sad they can’t be touched Horrible they can’t be hugged Annoying they flee your advances to mould Yet they are your shadows […]

UNDER THE SAME SUN

Under the same sun Beliefs vary in many a man Whereas some in nature shun Others build myths like webs in the sky Where none tries to look as it’s so high There are those ghosts caged without a bye Bruskotoed on oh day and night! Still there are some believing all a fight A […]
