Don't leave me hidden...

Poetry By: Ghonesis

Could you find me if I didn't show myself to you?

Could you find me in the dark,

if I switched the lights on and off briefly?

Of course you couldn't:

because you're standing with your back to me.

Nobody seems to notice me.

and on the inside...

That hurts...

More than I can hide.

Rolling my eyes, I sigh again.

I shrug, storing my tears.

Over and over again,

I won't show them out of fears.

Leave me be,

now that you've discovered me.

+ but...


All might be in vain,

just don't leave me in this pain.

Turn the lights on,

and ask me: 'What's wrong?'
