I don’t wish to be dark, since all I want from life is to bring you light. Light to shine like joy upon you and me. But I know I can’t hand you a ray of sunshine, like a celestial flower, just as you can’t chase away my dark ennui. And I don’t know if you’d even accept it if I offered. Maybe because you know what I know about life and light. How whenever each has shone upon us, neither of them has come cheaply. And nothing’s ever come to us without a fight. So while I don’t want to bring you more darkness, we both know shadow’s the price we pay for the gift of light from above. The shadow light casts when something or someone stands between us and some someday’s bright shining love. So I will never stand in the way of the light you need and deserve. Just as I hope you’ll never block mine. For that we must stand side by side, letting the light have us full, and leaving our lives’ shadows behind.
