I am Rikimaru; I am Shadow

Writer, Poet, Social Commentator


Though I cannot see you

Though you be far away

Like an aperitif I feel you

In my thoughts I see you everyday


You know it is meant for you when I smile like this

My heart is vast like the rivers between

This yearning, this wish, for a kiss

So long, so long, a kiss of sin.


Let me tell you what I see

What sights of wonder fill my head

What warmth, what joy, what sudden glee

Resurrection to a heart called ‘dead’.


You disprove science, I tell you;

For I feel my heart on the right

I see the sun clouded blue

The darkest nights as bright as light.


But you know what we both know

The nays have it; yes

So I will sing this song, slow
