There was a pause in the darkness.
A space where light ran its warmth through shadow,
silently breaking it in two.
Stretching out long across a floor it didn’t know,
in hopes of becoming a path where lost feet could find their way out.
Waiting to be stepped into
to fill eyes adjusted to the dark with the sunlight sparkle they deserved.
To color in rose those cheeks bathed in tears,
and set right the wrong of too long a nightfall.
This would be the day where hope would meet the promise of opened doors.
Where light would flood in to find the one who called her,
and the point of turning would begin to reveal itself –
only a step away.
