Beyond dreaming, hope:
a tower that hides shadows
from towering light.

A little shadow
can cling to a broken heart
even when happy.

Shadows hunt the sun
and follow it through the day
until the moon shines.

All not saved will be lost.

I see that you have sought out light in a dark corner for this poem. I love how you use shadows to emphasize that nothing can hide the light of the moon.
