It Takes Some Darkness - Poem by Patti Masterman
It takes some darkness to unveil the light:
The dark diamond, in the midst of squalor;
Revelatory schism, of blackest night.
It takes some evil, to unmask the pure:
The slanted shadow, running crooked walls;
Trickle near the stream, of tainted sewer.
It takes the demon, to oppose the saint:
As cunning plans, reveal the innocent;
And bravest courage, holds up the faint.
In the midst of two illumined souls,
A mirror shows back to them their splendor;
But beside that fullness: the ravening hole.
