Shadows: A poem

The deep intimacy between light and dark;

A duality which allows us to perceive.

You know love and loss as deeply as one another,

As strong as you can be vulnerable.

Soften the hardened space which sought to keep you safe;

For this dulls life.

Sure you may feel safer but you are detached.

Unable to truly feel for fear of feeling pain,

For fear of feeling pain you no longer know love.

Breathe deeply into your being and sensitise to what is around you,

To what is within you.

Breathe life back into those spaces tightened by the past,

Reconnect to the beauty that is here with you now,

The light and the dark.
