Light and Dark

Your light pulls me,
Your light pulls me
like a morning ray
making its way through
a tiny crack in an iron door

Your light pulls me
But then, also,
or even more so,
Your darkness pulls me
For the places in the deep
trenches of your mind,
where you are afraid to go
make you as much
as does your light

As a day, incomplete
without her night
Never fully meeting
But always softly kissing hellos
and goodbyes

So I write this,
In the name of your darkness
as much as your light
Light that fills me
Darkness that makes me plunge
Only to return
As a day after her night

- Neha
