Sharing Shadows

If I show you my shadow
Will you share with me yours , too ?
We can bond in the darkness
where we learn each others truths

And if I lay myself bare
Will you promise to take Care
And hold no ill-will
For what you may find there

And if I open my heart
show you all of my scars
No matter how fresh and jagged
Will you swear not to depart

Intimacy doesn’t begin to explain
What you and I have to gain
If we can help each other cope
And be each others  hope

I’ll swallow your pain 
And swirl it around my brain
And heal you and shield you
So you don’t feel that again

So please share with me your shadow
And all we’ve discussed
I will free you from woe
In me you can trust.
