Shadow Journey

We started where most lovers do —
that starry-eyed place lit by candles.
Our tongues mapped each other’s bodies.

The next time,
his teeth stenciled a crescent moon.
Color rose, red to violet.

The time after that,
the marks were stripes,
light and dark, side by side, a repeating pattern,
a codependency.

Dark giving birth to light.
