a shadow

the shadows of the trees at night feel less like a ghost and more like the deepness of your eyes–the darkness, not daunting,

gladly swallowing me whole:

I am enraptured, I am enveloped,

in the layers of your soul.

you, the firefly that lights in soft synchrony with my heart, you live inside me you, you light me, with the brightness of a thousand stars.

at night the shadows play, they make your shape in the hall, i feel your hands in my own—my own still much too small.

for a moment, the silence, my imagination roars,

and for a moment I am content, to know Your heart, my only home.
