Light and Shadow

I am writing

to speak all the things

I could not utter

when you stood before me,

holding the air

that I breathe.

 

I quivered.

 

Then.

 

Like an arrow—

I shot out high above

you, aflame.

 

But.

 

You did not see me

for all the time

you spent with

your head hung low,

casting a shadow

and darkening

your way ahead.

 

I am in light.

You are in shadow.

 

And.

 

There is nothing

more there between.
