Shadow.

Shadow.

A Poem by E.j.aka.Hannah

I got you figured out.
I saw you yesterday.
I lusted after your face.
I wanted your eyes to follow me.
But they didn't.
No they didn't.

 

I want to be a fly in your jar.
I want to be that girl on your arm.
But no, I'm not that pretty.
No, I'm not that petty,
No.

 

Warming your touch on my skin, I wish I
Could be your ultimate sin, I
wish I could be the ointment on your scab, I
wish I could be the pills on your tab,
But no.
I'm not that pretty, no,
I'm not that petty, no...
I'm just a shadow.

 

I'm watching you walk away,
I'm wondering where you'll stray,
I wish I could run away,
But there's a voodoo over me,
I can't see what you don't see,
No.

 

Just a shadow...

Not even a memory, no.

Cause of death, a nabbed soul,
Inside my heart was made of coal,
But no one cares about a shadow,
Just a f*****g shadow.
No.

 

I'm watching you walk away,
I'm waiting on you to turn my way,
But you never did, did you?
Not about a shadow, no,
Just a f*****g shadow.

 

I wanted just to say,
You're perfect, dear, in every way,
But you're not a shadow, are you?
Not a f*****g shadow, no.
Not a shadow, no.

Very sensual. I could say a lot about this poem, but I almost felt as if I was doing something wrong as I read it. The taboo feeling of going too far was expressed in a very striking way. I became a part of the poem and roamed the mind of a frightening person. I wondered if this was the kind of person who stays away..or they would eventually take what they want. It embodies the idiom "Dont love me to death."

The only bad thing about this poem IMO is that I think it can only go so far on paper. As lyrics with a minor key...I believe this song would scare the hell out of people. A major key could be even better as it would conflict with the words and create confusion and make the listener wonder if it is all true or not. Either route would be compelling.

As a poem it's great work. I loved it.
