shame

Location

 

Once I found...what I was looking for...

it wasn't so hard.

Once I knew... who I was...

I was so much happier.

 

People see me as they have...

Always,

seen me.

They think that I have never...

Faltered.

 

They never thought that I would falter.

They never thought that I would think...

Those Things.

No one sees It.

Even now.

 

What would they think of me...

if they Knew?

 

If they knew the deepest

recesses of my

Heart?

If they knew that I had

done the

Unspeakable?

If they knew that I had

considered the

Irreversible?

 

Would they shun me?

they would never see me the same

Again.

 

And so I stay silent.

Locking my

Past,

inside of

Me.
