24 Street Quotes and Poems – Jerm XI
I walk in blackness and I stumble and fall and rise, and I walk blind, my feet trampling the silent stones and the dry leaves. Someone behind me also tramples, stones, leaves: Everything dark and doorless, only my steps aware of me, I turning and turning among these corners which lead forever to the street where nobody waits for, nobody follows me, where I pursue a man who stumbles and rises and says when he sees me: Everything dark and door less, only my steps aware of me, What a great poem revealing the restless quest of someone who is even haunted by his own shadow.
I had read such a theme in a novel, but the feeling as it is painted here was not that revealing. Thanks great poet for such a skillful art.
