it takes light to even see our shadow

if there was no sun,

you would have no

shadow. if it wasn’t

for your shadow, i

might never have

touched you. my

acceptance of

your silhouette

came from my

encounter with

your spirit. where

an ego could hide,

i found none. you

have kissed those

outside your heart.

you accept my

vulnerabilities. if i

am violent without

reason, you are

my wounded healer.

the caretaker for

my perceptions. i

cultivated my

garden in poor soil,

in the darkness of

my own shadow.

thank you, for

taking away my

comfort.
