Befriending a Shadow

Today I was forced to walk in the shadow of a rainbow, as butterflies went flower kissing anointing their noses in the syrup of nectar and song birds taught each other the love songs that step on the tip of your tongue when you miss the electric feel you never really had.
I became one with the shadow like dreams into smoke, as sunlight danced shamelessly on petals, because the darkness in me had finally found a friend. A friend made of sweet medicine, that gave birth to poison after it had left no sickness in me and i kept sucking from the straw in its neck.
