In Hiding - Poem by Candace Johnson

Please do not ask.
Do not make it your task,
to find me,
to find all you can see.

Do not because I am not there.
Do not ask where...
but I am hiding.
Away I am quickly riding.

In side of my heart,
to and fro I dart.

I lock my self away.
I say things I do not want to say,
beacuse I am afraid.
Look at me, look at what you've made

I wear a mask.
'A mask? ' you ask.
But do not ask...do not wonder.
Do not swoop upon me like thunder.

Just leave me alone.
Do not drone.
Do not do anything.
All I am asking for is nothing.

When there is nothing, maybe,
you can see who I want to be.

    Guess we *****d up big time when we last met.? Perhaps searching for something which is no longer there is a lost cause.
    Nice poem Candace.

    This poem made me think that maybe we're all in hiding from something and we all wear a mask to hide from something. (Report) Reply
