Riddles In The Void

Riddles In The Void short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

I write in riddles so no one will ever truly perceive me.
I speak in riddles creating a web of ambiguity.
The void is full of that voice.
Whispered suggestions that give me no choice.
Words in my head that control and haunt.
Reflections in the mirror that persist and taunt.
The illusion of my life deceive all but me.
I’m very good at showing people what they want to see.

The Void So Deep! long poem

“The voice that sings your name is sweeter than the midnight sleep, or the sweetest melody; The mind that drives me to you is dearer than the intellect that is deep; The sweetest melody will turn less sweet, Deep introspection
