Imperfect Bookends

Imperfect bookends
Both suited to one another
And completely contradictory
Sit upon my bookshelf
Exemplifying the duality
Of the yin and yang

One dark and unwilling
To find happiness and peace
In its twisted existence

The other bright and unwilling
To live without them

Both are victims of the same
Catastrophic fall from grace
When the world was shaken
And gravity took hold
Yet where one seems to be
A shattered lump of anguish
The other shines forth
Broken beautifully
And there the two sit
On my shelf
Holding up both ends of
My library
