seth howard | play of shadow


You made to turn as if to go
And I knew there was nothing I could say
To make you stay, behind made to know

Would you not turn to go?
I made to make my way, as if going
Could not hold me here, there
Light enchants where shadow lack thereof
A shadow within a shadow? Is a shadow cast
From behind the object which light has
Never reached? Nothing I could stay
To make you go, not turn, would you
As if ever? Shadow enchants the lack thereof
Light shines behind an object
The space left in the shadow cast
Nothing could not be here, as if going
Could not hold light, nothing-object

Turn to go, would you, if I could stay
Behind the shadow, object, light cannot
Reach, is still the shadow cast?
