the box

a love affair is like a box
a sacred vessel
we put our togetherness into
some boxes are shining
overflowing with love and light
we look into them almost daily
and smile
some boxes are stuffed full
of ugly memories
so we hide them under the bed
but we still know they are there
you and i have spent years
filling our box
with both dark and light
when we’re drawn to the light
the darkness is there too
the heartache lies there
hidden away
left for some other day
to revere the light
we’ll have to summon courage
and accept the darkness
for it completes us
and makes our light
even more brilliant
