Shadow
spawn of light
your faces are many
in the physical world
you cannot exist
without your mother, light
you are the key
that unlocks the artistís brush
the friend of the thief
cohort of the transgressor
creator of the written word
cloak of the unknown
companion of sleep
reflection of reality

In the world of the mind
you reign supreme
all human thought
is born in shadow and darkness
be it joy or sadness
love or rejection
commitment or abandonment
pleasure or pain
your dark hand touches
all that we are
neither good nor evil
you are what you are...

shadow

the woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep, and many miles to go before I sleep...Frost

Wonderful, thoughtful poetry, this.  I had never thought of shadow in this intense manner.  Well done.  Love, Joyce

You've perceived and described "shadow" in a very positive light here.

Enjoyed reading.
