It and I

You whisper within me

Born from myself

Of my shell

To stare out of me

into my face

With brooding eyes 


I see your mastery of me

For me to change

to the face of you

of a creature 

that passes from within 

Maleficent and immoral 


To return unashamed

To settle within 

To hollow the shell

Is your face my face

Am I the creature 

That whispers within

What an exquisite poem as you delve into your inner self to explore and consider those movements which often pass unnoticed yet are there all the same. I must re read this a few times and ponder more.

Thank you for this. A good poem.
