HIM By Trisha Longview

Through the dark and light, my shadow moves me

And I move my shadow.


He’s the masculine to my feminine

The capable to my cowardice


My cloak and cover.


He tricks me and distorts my size

Never quite small enough.

Never quite good enough.


But always there


At least he will never leave me.


When it’s time to sleep he waits for me

Ever present.

Ready to meet me anew

And force me to lead us through another day.
