I may not be as you think I am.

Post by poeticpiers » Sun Jan 16, 2011 7:25 am

I may not be as you think I am.

If I can make you laugh or weep.
With words I’ve chosen carefully.
Or sometimes cause your flesh to creep
so that you shiver fearfully.
Then I’ve succeeded with my task
and done what I set out to do.
Displayed what lies behind my mask
But you cannot be sure can you.
The tiny glimpse I let you see.
Represents true reality.
Or just another fantasy.
I conjure up so easily.
Although I share my poetry
I still retain my privacy.

We're seldom certain as to what makes each of us tick either. Good poem
