To Love a Shadow

one day she ask, how to love
a shadow?
why you ask, I say
but she answer none

so then I offer these words,

don’t love a shadow
but find the light
the only one that could pull the shadow out from his cocoon
the one that dances with him, anytime
under the night canopy

don’t love a shadow
but find its master
the one with a face and eyes

stare into those eyes
shine light on them
find what you’re looking for
and if you find it
then you can love the shadow

why the question, I ask again,

because on some days
shadow is the only one I have, said she
