Mortal Shell

Mortal Shell

A Poem by KeeD

The world exists in a parallel plane 
one houses shadows and the other the mundane 
In this mediocrity, I exist to eventually die 
My Anima abandons me for a shell to occupy 

I used to be detached from my inner self 
just a silhouette shadowing my own mental hell 
Tiny fractures in the cracks of morality 
A doppelgänger and I now live in duality 

Now I see beyond the veil of the eye
a paradise beyond the edge of the sky
My purpose is to adventure through the sands of time
To find, cherish and keep what is rightfully mine

I owe it all to you my mirrored reflection
to save me from my unforgiving depression
I want to feel the music of my heart beat
With you by my side, I refute defeat

this could be a love poem, but I see it as looking at oneself in the mirror and coming to a realization.
I am not really living, I am just playing it safe...I need to start taking chances, going for my dreams...or I will die just a shell of what I could have been.
This is so good Kee...

To feel the music in the heart one must travel through the echoes and the echoes can liberate albeit sometimes harshly so...to realise the journey is the destination sometimes is transcending in itself :)

A very soulful piece, beautifully written. Self reflection, realization, pain, and strength. All in which leads one to start living, chasing dreams, and finding true purpose which brings happiness.
