Silhouettes in her dark slowly form a circle
enclosing the confusion in her heart,
and when they start to spin,
grace falls and leaves her standing alone,
unsteady and broken.
The Shadows reach out,
caressing the most intimate secrets of her soul,
and then carelessly lay them out,
exposed to the daylight
from which she had so fiercely protected them.
They are no longer her possessions and
as they are now unsheltered,
she is left naked…
forced to betray her vulnerability
as the Shadows close in on her turmoil.
The Silhouettes continue to spin and change,
appearing as night and day through her tears.
A carousel of fear and hurt, circling around her,
as grace falls, leaving her standing alone…
unsteady and broken.
