On Darkness and Light

you said your writing was dark
because you are dark

but we are all dark

and have you forgotten
that without darkness
the light is meaningless?

when all is light
without shadow
tone
nuance
color
character
pattern
shape
there is nothing

all things, all meaning derives from
the interweaving of darkness and light

thus i admire and accept your darkness
as perhaps you should mine
