My Shadow

My Shadow

A Poem by Mirror
"

It is all about writers who steal and make fame with other people's work.

"



If you read,

You write

Say a word

And you are heard

But let it be your hand

Let it be your voice

For if it yet be my creation

My shadow only you are

And if death may do us part

The sun shall reveal your heart

The world will know you then

That all this while you are

Nothin’ but my shadow

Theft always comes to light as do lies, as you so beautifully state here, "And if death may do us part
The sun shall reveal your heart" Yet there are those who don't mind dwelling in the darkness. You hit home hard with this piece. Just what we were talking about yesterday. Another exceptional write, Mirror!

I read the poem before I read the description.

It evokes emotion and I reread a few times to try and understand (this is more about me, it takes me a while to think things through). It felt like loss of some sort, a child, a lover, maybe the loss of ownership when you put your writing into the world and then someone else reads into it their interpretation.

After reading the description the poem changes, it is still very emotive and flows better. The line about 'death may do us part' has a good rhythm, it feels like I need to think on that some more to understand how death will expose the deceit.

Now for the most unhelpful bit of the review - I really liked it, thanks for sharing.
