Shadow Lover

you hid me in the shadows…
made me feel unworthy of spotlight…
of being proudly displayed on your arm…
you hid me like a villian…
like a disease too horrible for mentioning…
on cable TV…
you hid me from your friends…
creating the need for me to hide you from mine…
a concubine…
you made me…
trapped in a vicious love cycle…
that fulfilled…
yet depleted…
all at once…
until that day my heart screamed “Enough!”
and walked from you…
stepping out of the shadows…
into the sun…
warm rays streaming on my face…
no longer disgraced…
by my shadow lover…
