Melancholy Hyperbole

Poetry about longing.

Dependent

I’ve little to say to you;
     I’m still finding new places
     to hide.
 

You lurk in the middle
of the room,
 

          oblivious
 

to your harm, and I find myself
in the shadows,
 
 

hoping
 
 

     you do not see me.
 

Our roles seem reversed
to anyone who does not know
to be afraid
of what has become
 

                    your way.
