I Glance at the Shadow

I glance at the shadow

I glance at the shadow
That stalks me,
Dark and wiry and slender,
Then walked on til he
Conquered me
And my mind and my heart I let him conquer

A bright eye overlooks
The entrapment,
White, bright, and motionless
There he stayed well up
And above the illumination lent
Til she sank to flames, towards her breasts

The cycle still greatly baffles me
A shift of shadows,
Of dances in the dark
Whether in the complete pitch blackness,
Or in bright, yellow, stark
And bare brightness
To the most intense
Or into the deepest
I am lost in transition.
