Black strokes,
Silver hints,
White,
Oh, so much white,
The void where none is found;
My world,
Not vivid,
Detailed.

My plaster,
My background, they say.
But you would know me so much better,
Analyzing their two dimensional demeanor,
Rather than my three dimensional face.


The author's comments:
I know tons of people who THINK they know me.But the fact is they know my face, my shell, and almost nothing inside. My writing is what goes on within me - what I think about, what I imagine, what I know, how I feel, etc. My face and body may be how you recognize me today, but in the end I won't always be with it. My shell will stay, my soul will move on, and you will see what you expect again. I'm more than you can know...

I love how this poem expresses so much in such few words. The poem's simplicity but yet the deep thought behind it, together, created a great poem.
