Hey man, I stole your name.
Be offended by my pronoun usage.
Everyone else: does this work, or is it too literal/simplistic?

I know myself
by the name you call me,
the enveloping press
of your voice
into my hands.

Steady in their sleepy,
speckled path, I stand
easily on calloused feet
and lightly in
knowing, shoulders back
against your breeze.
Should it cease, I'll be left
with pictures of my place,
and no sense
of who I am within it.
Please click above and help me make a living! Come chat about music at InTune. You want to. You know you do.

Definatly not to literal or simplistic. If it was simple, it was beautiful. Good job!
