Who Am I?

Who Am I?

In your shadow
I exist
losing myself
long ago
Content to be here
loving you
and being with you
 
As years go by
I remember me
The vibrancy
How I’d turn heads
when I entered
rooms full with people
Speaking freely
 
I could spin a story
and amuse
I would attract
with my voice
and laughter
nightly
Excitement!
 
This is how you
found me
Drawn to me
by a magnetic pull
and here I stayed
with you as
my private audience
 
Now, no one knows
my name
I am seen
but no one sees me
Sometimes
I feel the strain
Who have I become?

    Oh dear! This does happen when we make one person the focal point of our life. Well expressed. 💞
