The Night Walker

lets suggest

one’s shadow lives

a double life

an overseer of your reality

a witness

and yet a stranger

on the other side of the mirror

secretly smirking

behind the mask of glass

Shadow of reality

Gatekeeper to your dreams

that echo from the night


taking refuge in your head

this stranger is the night walker

of your dreams

your guardian through 

the labyrinth

then, the whisperer of

your daylight

but always too soft

and never long enough

too vague to remember

as you stare into the mirror

on any given morning


By  Paolo Michell





About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
