The shadow

The shadow

– My sweetheart, why didn’t you say anything to me?
– Your presence renders words needless.
– Words are the bridge between souls; how can I cross to you in silence?
– Talking is quite easy; see what I do and look into the depths of my eyes, you’ll see what you mean to me.
– A shadow.
– Yes, because the resplendent sun always shines on you.
– Everyone becomes a shadow under the sun.
– You are the vision in my daydreams and nocturnal musings, thus you appear like a constant and permanent symbol.
– I dream of you too; in my dream, you are not a shadow but a glow above the sparkling blue sea.
– In mine, you are the shadow from a giant green tree that calms my life.
– I also want to give you symphony, dance and light.
– The foliage whispers joyous tunes and the light passing through dance merrily.
– In cinematography, shadow represents sense of mystery, suspense, fear, turmoil, drama, tension, isolation,…
– But it’s also beauty, desire, intimacy… like I feel you.
– You always find a way to prevail over my whim.
– I interact with your emotions, because I listen and I care.
– I’m impetuous and capricious, why are you so patient with me?
– You believe that it’s easy to find someone like you? I’m a book but not everyone is literate. I’m grateful that you can read it, no matter how you perceive it. You’re so rare to me.
– But I feel like an idiot every time I talk to you.
– Let’s admire our stupidity like we appreciate each other for our talents.
– You have always won.
– You have knocked me down instead, and I can’t recover.
– Liar.
– I trust this because I know you’re telling lies.
– Fine, what is true remains the truth: I’m a shadow in your eyes.
– Come stay in my arms and we’ll be the shadow of each other.
