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
