The good, the bad, the me – an Ekphrasis

‘The good, the bad, the me’ – my painting explained.

I was an angel once,

Soft wings.

Blue eyes.

Knee- deep in thought.

Next, I was Lucifer,



Knee- deep in thought.

Times changed.

Stars twinkled.

I was a mere someone,

Knee- deep in thought.

I’m not an angel now,

Not dulcent.

Not calm.

I also am not him,

Not reckless.

Not dark.

For times still change,

Stars continue to glow,

And I am me.

Not an angel.

Not the Devil.

All I am,

And will ever be,

Is all,

Just all,

Just all, of me!
