A Shadow's Calling (1 Viewer)

A shadow visited last night.
Not dark and visceral,
but it radiated with a contradictory light.
Its calling felt rather surreal.

I watched as it danced, played, and even cried.
From a distance I couldn’t help but stare.
Its brilliant stature growing wide,
living life as if on a dare.

I laughed and wept with this formidable sprite.
This person I never met.
A life lived outside of black and white,
a courage to live without regret.
