I am Your Icon
ICON

This is a little sketch I jotted down nine years ago and never developed. I started editing it into lines, phrases, stanzas before posting it here...and then reconsidered and thought that should be up to you. This is pretty much how I wrote it down the first time.

I can imagine this as an urgent whisper/incantation or bundled into a sharp staccato rap delivery. I always read it like I'm performing in a poetry jam, which I've never actually done; that may explain why I've not used or published this before. Anyway, use it however you like. Chop it up, repeat, overlay with something else. Whatever.

I am
Your icon
An image
A vision
Perfection
You see in me
A reflection
Of dreams
Drifting under the surface
Settling lower
Proud
Belly
Up

I am
Eternal
Essential
Undying
Potential
Will always be
Evidential
These wounds
Being mortal are only
Intended for you
Others
Not
Me

Hi Mr. Yesterday,
great lyrics, you did say though that we should feel free to usse it however we like. I took the basic structure, but took the theme someplace else. Hope you also like it. martinsea Reply
