How Would Anyone Know?

I would just melt into the dark, if only you’d let me stay

Be a part of the unknown, if only I could

But it chokes me, to not be

How would anyone know? If I would just sneak away

Away from the limelight

In the midst of a crowd


How would anyone know?

My Window

A small window from which I view my world

I call it mine and yet I feel alien in it

Strange and stranger still as I walk out

Seldom do I fall in line with others

Who talk and live, I watch with fascination

The love and the warmth

The jealousy and the conceit

I retreat and yet my window waits

Comforting, I view the world

Away from prying eyes.
