I Am Not But I Am

I am the wound but not the blade
I am the poison but not the antidote
I am darkness but not light
I am the bowl but not its contents
I am summer but not winter
I am silence but not noise
I am the butcher but not the lamb
I am near but not far
I am in space but not in time
I was born but haven´t died
I am the riddle but not the answer
I am myself but not you
I am the pronoun but not the verb
I am the curve but not the plane
I am not but I am
