Shadows:

I am reaching for you

You are reaching for me

But an invisible boundary

Stands in our way

Blocking the light

Of her face

From me

From the darkness that fills me

I love her

More than

The flowers

Love water

Her love

Is the rope

To which

I cling

If I should

Let go I

Shall fall

Spiraling downward into the great

Abyss

Of my shadows
