Shadows

I need to love you
I want to be loved

All of me
Not
Just the part
Others are allowed see

I want to share with you
My dreams
Both dark
And light

For I am
Dichotomous

I am
A saint
And
A sinner
I am
Yin
And yang
I am
Sweet
Yet cruel
I am
Good
And evil
I am
Soft
But strong

There are secrets
To share
If you will listen

I have needs
You may not fulfill

I have desires
You may find
Distasteful

I will share my darkness

You may choose
To leave

I will share my darkness

You may choose to stay
 And let my darkness
Remain in the shadows

I will share my darkness

You may choose
To stay

To light the candle
That causes the shadow
To disappear

We are all darkness
And light
We are all strong
Yet vulnerable
We are all evil
And good
We are all ugly
And beautiful

We are all human
