day 190

you welcome your demons
to join you at the table
but not partake.

unrestrained yet inert,
you keep them in the light
so as to not forget
their presence or participation
in your journey.

slippery duality of self,
sweet yet acrid; soft while razor sharp,
you learn to feed on the light
and embrace the gentle sweetness
your life can bring.
