Conversation With A Shadow

NKT The Poet

I am your Ruth
A perfect picture in your

You appeared
As dark as coal
Then disappeared- just like you appeared
Such a gust from a whirlwind

You are the sun shining down into my valleys and waking them up,
Pushing back the darkness that cling around my heart and mind
You are the reason for my being
Though i am a chameleon with every passing season

I love the way you give muscle to my wasting flesh
Though i am a girl in the closet sometimes
Afraid to face the world head on
I count my worth in your mirror

I am your Ruth
A perfect picture in your
I commit to you dearly
And only death will engulf our bond

When you sway uncertainly
And dart like a shooting star
To nowhere but trouble
Look to Him who swallows all impossibilities
Even when death penetrates your door
Be the Psalmist
Depend on Him who does not change
Like shifting shadows
