As You Are

we threw away expectations

and old memories,

welcomed light and dark

with open arms
we were made of shadows

we were made of stars

(we told them both

to come as they are)
we witnessed the forbidden

and chased the authentic

we wanted peace

we craved the irenic
so we broke the spell,

entwined heaven and hell

with nothing left to conceal,

we took our time to heal
