Status of Humanity

be diminished by

Past questioned, Look, Voice-

and- Expression- thereby-

Face paled in light,

every shade within the eye

revealed. The light is

no different from shadow-

it hides the recognizable.

Old friends become

pale ghosts,

different from memory.

Many people

try to be “cool”

by acting aloof when

their hearts flutter,

and they cannot utter

what they want, for then

a wall is broken, and they’ll feel

even more so, because the one

they wished to tell now knows.

How shadows smooth

harshness of face and skin,

while light reveals

imperfections, and illuminates

wildness therein.
