Half A Shadow


I was locked up in a dark dusty box. I hadn’t been out in ages.

I wasn’t there by choice. I was there because someone put me in that untouchable, unreachable and unseeable edge of the Universe.

I was lost in my own thoughts, damaged by my own ego, and utterly destroyed by my compulsive needs.

I had nowhere to go, nowhere to be. I had lost every hope of seeing any light in the world outside.

I just wanted to get sucked in into my own eccentricities and cease to exist.

Just when all those thoughts were running across my mind, you passed by me.

It’s like someone suddenly turned a blinding light on something that had always been half a shadow.

And everything suddenly changed.

The flowers had colors; aroma; the trees were swaying; the leaves were falling, following a certain rhythm; the sky looked blue again; the clouds looked like big balls of cotton candy flying by me; everything changed in that moment.

I just saw a vision of you and life suddenly had a meaning.

And I started wondering if life could be much more than what I had always imagined it to be like. I started thinking if I could have more than what I thought I deserved.

I wondered if I was actually worthy!

You lit up my world. both literally and figuratively.

P.S. I am no longer ‘Half A Shadow!
