You Walked Past The Light
In darkness we laughed while the light waited its turn
But you left without regret walking past the light in silence
Your shadow remained refusing the hand of my own
As I slept you tormented me with your shadows resistance
The light bore no darkness as absence casts its own silhouette
The sadness of being alone is stronger than the joy of love
When the natural world is as humbled as love was when you departed
Then what desire ignored must be what I now know something of
In the dawn of an awakening flower in search of its nourishment
The light struggles in being asked to forgive an insatiable garden
As the heart withholds itself from the soft hand what remains?
Only lust without love controlled by the beauty it will always pardon
