We tiptoe
around our
shadow selves

Weaving in between
the time-bound
and the timeless

We once were dreamers
and then we became
all too aware
of the darkness
of the night

And we allowed ourselves
to be swallowed up
for what seemed
like an eternity

But every time
the light extinguished
from within me
I found a spark
in you

And when I begged
for you to share
what little you had left

You pulled me in
and held me close
and whispered
that the light
was merely a reflection

And it had always
belonged to me
