I'm going to try again with the "other languages" scheme. This time, I think the format makes sense.

Right now you see me
Ahora no me miras
今、見ません

Who am I?

Rough translation (Still a valid haiku, yay!):

Right now you see me
You do not see me right now (Spanish)
Now, you don't see me. (Japanese)

Hint:

It's not a word. Well, it is a word, but it's a set of words. If you know what I mean...

    $\begingroup$ No miras me ahorda => No me miras ahora. I believe. $\endgroup$ – fffred Apr 13 '16 at 11:52
  • $\begingroup$ @fffred rigth, but we use to say: "Ahora no me miras", the other wording just seems weird $\endgroup$ – BianB BB Apr 13 '16 at 12:23

    $\begingroup$ The Spanish part should be "Ahora no me ves". $\endgroup$ – Masclins Apr 13 '16 at 13:05
  • $\begingroup$ "mirar" means "look at", not "see". $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Apr 13 '16 at 13:11

You are

English

Because :

Right now you see me --> this is English so you see English
No miras me ahorda --> you read and see Spanish, not English
今、見ません --> you read and see Japanese, not English

Hint :

"English" is a word but it also represents all the english words

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ You did it! YAY!! (But explain the actual poem too.) $\endgroup$ – You Apr 13 '16 at 11:47

Simply because you're:

You ;)

Right now you see me

See you.

No miras me ahorda

今、見ません

Don't see you and those lines are saying exactly that in both Spanish and Japanese.

Hint

You takes on a number of meanings: the word itself, your username and yourself.

    $\begingroup$ I wouldn't be selfish enough to have that as an answer. lol $\endgroup$ – You Apr 13 '16 at 11:40

  • $\begingroup$ Freudian analysis is based on Id, ego and super-ego. So in this model your subconscious id could be manipulating your behavior unbeknownst to You. Ok, I'll try to stop the joking about it... $\endgroup$ – Paul Evans Apr 13 '16 at 18:25

Is the answer

me

Right now you see me

I see "me", it's on the right

No miras me ahorda

I see "me" but it's not on the right

今、見ません

Now I don't see "me"

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nice reasoning about "right" and "me"! However, that is not the answer either. $\endgroup$ – You Apr 13 '16 at 11:46

    $\begingroup$ The second (non-comma) character in Japanese is "mi", pronounced the same. ^_^ $\endgroup$ – feelinferrety Apr 13 '16 at 15:07

Are you

A statement in a West Germanic language?

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Well, "me" is an English and Spanish word, but you're on the right track! $\endgroup$ – You Apr 13 '16 at 11:25
  • $\begingroup$ @You changed it slightly $\endgroup$ – question_asker Apr 13 '16 at 11:47
  • $\begingroup$ Closer. Or farther, depending on the perspective. At least now its one and multiple words. $\endgroup$ – You Apr 13 '16 at 11:48
