Shadows and light

A snap of the lens is all it takes

every curve, every wrinkle even the twinkle in your eyes come to life

you look radiant and full of life

with your multitude of colors and beaming light

the wall behind you shows the truth

the distorted view that is you

while still beautiful with all its light

the underneath shadows are unbecoming of you

wishing one day that empty space will fill

where the light meets the shadow and it all becomes real

the breath I hold will never suffice

since that day will never appear

 all that will be is the empty patterns on the wall

which will just have to suffice
