lover, come sit a spell
against this shadow wall you know so well
or i'll make a shadowbox for you to play in
and wrestle with your shadow truths all day in

lover, you rest your eyes, you mustn't blind them in this bright light
you might see or hear or need to need too much here, so go before
you're cornered to your shadowbox my dear

lover, you hope too late, and in this darkened room
you've made your fate
as the shadows claim you for your very own, i'll sweep this
darkness from my doorstep, glad to see you've gone

know you not a single solid form
of your heart's love, or your heart's scorn?
