Transient

I am but
A simulacrum of self.
Slightly different
From a moment ago.

Like a whisper
Separated by decibels
From the uttered word

Like a shadow displaced
On its owner’s
Whimsical moves

Beautiful!

not similar, but somehow reminded me of these lines:

Now the years are rolling by me
They are rocking evenly
And I am older than I once was
And younger than I'll be, but that's not unusual.
No, it isn't strange
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same
-Simon n Garfunkel

I think 'simulacrum' might just be my favourite new word. Even though I have no idea what it means!

@Princess Fiona: Thanks. As long as it isn't me you intend to kill .. :-)

@30in2005: Thanks. I like the rhythm of the word simulacrum.

Per dictionary.com
sim·u·la·crum
1. a slight, unreal, or superficial likeness or semblance.
2. an effigy, image, or representation: a simulacrum of Aphrodite
