Who am I??

All poems are my original creation. All pictures were taken and edited by me.

Some of my poems have been featured in: The Scum Gentry Alternative Arts and Media Network | A New Ulster Magazine |Love, Pain & Poetry | Morality Park

A wounded soul…a rotten lover…someone who doesn’t know how to play The Life Game – Self, as perceived in September 2017

____________________________________

The Self is not a static being,

It is soft and flexible as a stream.

Carries itself in motion

Changing with seasonal emotion

Like the colours of the leaves

Who am I? You ask me

Like a picture that freezes time

My answer can only be tied

To the moment I am living in.

————————————————–

I am a beast. I don’t exist
This is a role. You play today. What dress will you put on tomorrow?
A Cinderella princess ruffled crease? Or your bare rotten teeth?
For the Queen wears no clothes. Ragged in shreds, like her heart.
This show of lonesome.
Let me out. Bring back ignorance and void.
Knife out…these seeing eyes. Wipe out, transcendent sight.
Let me return to what these globes should be for.
Observation, no meaning. No more.
This is life. As seen. By blind. Not me.
Goodbye…Luiza has died

  1. This is a lovely presentation of who you are, Luiza, pure existentialist philosophy, where the world and the being (in this case represented by you, though it applies to the being, in general), are in constant motion. The words “seasonal emotion” connect the being/you to the world we live in. Heidegger said we are thrown into the world. Following his philosophy and the lines of your poem we are also thrown into the cycle of life and nature’s seasons (represented in your poem with the “colours of the leaves”), which obviously reconnects with the “seasonal emotion” of the being. Finally, you pose the great existentialist question “Who am I”, which leads to the next one: Can we freeze time and the moment we are living in? https://momentsbloc.wordpress.com/2017/04/09/i-tasted-spring/

    1. Oh my. Your comment makes my heart race. I’m so sad we are not in person and miles away. I wish we were friends for I seek people who write poetry, read philosophy, like yourself. Somehow, philosopher’s names are music to my ears. Haha. I obviously know him but never read him. Thank you for coordinating so much literature in one post and by reading my poem through his prism.. Going to u now! Love these links, its like we keep debating on a continuum! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’ž
