Sisters. One is Light The Other is Dark

Sisters by Julio Romero de Torres

My Two Sisters

I have two sisters.


One is Light. The other is Dark.


Light kisses me when I

go to school.

Dark frowns darkly.


Light, playing tag with me

on lazy post-school


is full of light.

Dark threatens me with


if I don’t do my homework.


At night, Light flies away,

without a backward turn.

I creep into bed quietly,

not to disturb busily-scribbling



But before I fall asleep,

I feel the night wrap around me,

like a blanket warm and soft,

and I know that Dark

is kissing me,

and that the tears on my cheeks

are from

her beautiful eyes.



In quietly precious moments,

that pass almost unnoticed,

except for an unexplainable

feeling of bliss,

we betray those better beings

we are so keen

to conceal.


Sara fights all the time.

She calls her Radha names.

She pulls her hair and slaps her

till both of them cry.


But when the girls, all of them,

are dancing in a circle,

look at Sara grip Radha’s hand,

watch Radha grip her



The careful looseness of that

hold makes me love Sara the way

she does not like to be loved,

or love:



The hold says:

Fly away from me,

fly away all you want,

sweet bird of my dreams,

I’ll come and find you,

sweet bird,

when you need me.

My Sara loves my Radha

very much.
