Trick of the Mind

Jester

Jester (Photo credit: mrpolyonymous)

You were a trick of the mind
A wolf in jester’s clothing
A child within a man

You were a phantom being
Clothed in trickster flesh
Strange skeletal span

You were the opposite
Of what you would portray
And yet you didn’t lie

You were a trick of the mind
A turn upon the boards
A winking of an eye

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
