Poem: Tending the Shadows

Tending the Shadows

You tend to the shadows,
those dark places in the heart,
the empty spaces,
that cry and rant and flail
in a world that somehow
you cannot grasp, yet

dances around you with joy
tantalizingly close,
yet still distant in a way you cannot understand,
so easy for others,
so elusive for you.
