the parts of me
that you refuse to see
will always be
what keeps us apart

while the parts of you
that are untrue
denied, will do
away with feelings of the heart

what is true for you
is true for me too

and so we push the dark away
back and forth, both night and day
and the shadows play
as we wonder why the love departs

when the truth at the core
could bring all of us more
and serve to restore
the whole to ailing parts
