Not everyone deserves the real you
And maybe that’s why you were a mere shadow
To all those who tried to see you just in the light
But feared your darkness and fled
as soon as evening fell

While I have,
not just seen
the shadow become prominent
because I looked for the light
hiding in your dark
I’ve witnessed it
taking on myriad hues
When I embraced your darkness
with my shades of love
