The Shadow and the Mirror

Midnight unveils my secrets
In some dark forgotten corner
a little light persists

Time does help me emerge
Re-invent my faded self
till the tip glows
with the root's strength

This is beyond sleep
this living out my dreams
When no-one else can
see or hear
Except the shadow and the mirror.

I like the theme of reinventing yourself (or your self), like discarding your old skin and growing a new one.

Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Beautiful and introspective. Thank you Shaista for commenting on my blog about fingerless mitts - please add me on as well -thank you!

I did not realize that you live in England. Been there once visiting friends, and we got lost everytime because of the round-abouts :)
cheers, jeannette
