Silouhettes

silhouettes

Moving stealthily beside me
My silhouette, but half of me
Reflecting glances cast upon me
This is all the other sees

But just one side of me is showing
Being that of left or right
Creating incomplete conclusions
The rest of me beyond their sight

If I were to change position
Face the other way per se
Would they gain a new perspective
Would more of me that side betray

Each in itself creates a picture
With many features indiscreet
Only when both seen together
Is who I really am complete

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions. While I tell myself that I write for my own pleasure, I in fact write for yours. As such, I hope that I put to paper a few scribblings that you might enjoy. If so, feel free to use them, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
