Her Shade

My heart has so many shades of love,
some scream for attention,
few turn pink on your mention,
and many hides beneath
the shrouds of pretentious doubt

Though I nurture them all
with utmost care,
and each one of the shades
while is precious to my soul
there remains​ one shade
that is dearer to me the most
the shade which has the reflection of her love,
the shade the bears her name,
the shade that let me survive
in this otherwise ostensible world
and I remain in blithe
in the shadows of such divine love
