Deep Down - Poem by Emily Casbourn

Deep down
You know it is there
The true colours
You hide them well
You're a masked figure
Not ever wanting to show the true you
Everyone waits to see if you will
It doesn't happen though
Day after day
I wait for the colours
I show mine over and over
You just watch
I don't get why you don't show yourself
Just show yourself to me please
It drives me mad
It drives others mental
I have known you for a while
But in the end still don't know you
Show your colours now
For me before I leave your side
I can't do this
It is time I leave
This time don't follow me
You won't get me back
I am done
At least until you prove you can show them
Show me your colours
I have shown mine
Just surrender to me
Show me your true self
Stop hiding yourself
I will see them
Just wait and see
I will one day you will show me
I will wait until then
I will wait just for that day
When you open up your heart
When you show those wondrous colours
