Peek

I’ve seen you from the
inside out
And now there’s no
turning back
I saw you cower behind the corner
like a child
peeking
And getting
caught.
What did you see, friend,
That made you scared forever?
Did you see the same tragedy
That I see
when I look at me?
Or did you see beauty, and were too afraid to tell me,
Because you know I’d disown you
for such an offense?
