"I" in past, present and future tense

If I write. "I" stood or "I" will stand can you see how the letter "I" takes on a personality of it's own. This only works in past and future tense. It does not work in present tense but I dont understand why. Could someone one tell me why that is from a grammar standpoint.

Here is a poem I wrote to illustrate what I'm saying.

I hid in a word you just read. My character so concealed you would think I was dead. I lie here in silence wondering what you see. A line a letter or just a mystery.

Thoughts?
