At a glance

From a distance.
At a glance.
In small doses,
To have now and again-
But not to hold forever,
When the sound of me,
Will surely be what
Drives you to yourself
And away from me.

I hunker down in the shelter
Of my own insecurities-
And they distance me from all of the things
you will find I am not-
Did I tell you I would be?
Perhaps…
I never remember the details of the words and intentions that fall so casually from my lips during stolen moments of idle chatter-
Who did I say I was?
Who did you see that day?

Like something you think you want until you need to escape it-
Like secrets wrapped in truth,
Better left unknown.
Like once in a lifetime, that you never meant to find,
Leaving you lost.

From a distance.
At a glance.
Caught by a glimpse-
Like a whisper barely heard-
Twisted into what we wanted to hear.
Like a breath of fresh air becomes a cough.
Like consumption becomes overwhelmed.
Like the truth when we are finally quiet enough to hear it.
Not a lie.
Just a better,
Clearer,
View.
