Light and Shadows / Poem by Lily Swarn

 
Poem by Lily Swarn
 
 
Light and Shadows
 
Accept me with my shadows
Don’t go looking for an insincere , saccharine human
Love my sinister, dark spaces
Just as you would the Amavasya night
Or my midnight black,star spangled sari
That made you want to sing for me
 
Adore not just my limpid eyes with their worried irises
Find strength to caress my darkest fears and blackest doubts
Let my morbid depressions never trouble you
For they will be followed by the lush luminosity of my laughter
 
Ignite the darkness of your slumbering conscience
Instead of waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel
For those who don’t believe will always find shadows
Those who have faith will see the whole firmament in a blaze of light
