he sparked a fire in the darkest places

the guiding light between her shadows

he simplified all of the complexities

he held together her broken pieces

…and even embraced the shadows

saw through the opacity of insecurities

and left her transparent

recognized the light

when she cloaked herself in darkness

he beautified the ugly parts of her

he heard the secrets of her heart

understood the stammers of her soul

whispered peace to her fears

revealed the fragments

whose existence had been forgotten

he held her close

despite the worlds between them

he saw wings

when she only shuffled the earth on her belly.
