Your voice is a whisper that dwells in my ear
telling me,telling me, nothing that YOU fear

Your words are petals from lush spring flowers
that fade and whiter and age so sour

Your heart is something I can't see

Your lies, so much louder, as though you weren't here

You yourself is distant, who are you?
The only you I know is your shadow
lying deep in the wells of my memory

So tell me,
Can you see my shadow?

Wow, this is amazing. It flows beautifully. I can definitely relate, knowing a few people's shadow myself. My favorite is the first 2 lines.
