Leave me the shadow


                                                   



                                                                                                                                                                               


Free me
Of the countless gazes,
That make my life
A maze of mazes






I need an existence
That is opaque, obscure
And yet a life that is
Transparent and pure







No one to ask
Where and how I've been
So that I can glide through the lanes
Unnoticed, unseen







No complaints, no expectations,
No praises, no worth
I want to be a flowing
Dark patch on the Earth







You'll walk all over me
But it'll cause me no pain
Your efforts to hurt me
Will all go in vain







Move the weight of visibility
 Off my chest
Leave me the shadow
And take the rest.
