The Voyeur

Go ahead,

take a peek.

What lies beneath

the surface?

Up in the air,

it’s calm and fair,

but under there,

it’s certain

that there’s

something in the darkness,

and it

calls to you endlessly.

 

Fear of all one’s oneness,

also meaning that you’re

one with

all the monsters, too.

 

Go ahead.

Peel back the skin.

See what we look like

under there.

 

Some of us

explain ourselves away

with light,

but like

all of our days,

we find ourselves in darkness.

So back we go,

into our shadow.

 

This is where we live,

on this solid ground.

With this abyss

all around.

 

so much that we don’t know,

it’s no wonder

we see madness

everywhere.

 

All this fear

is bigger than us.

Smaller than us.

Far away and

crawling on us.

Inside,

outside,

underneath.

Aren’t you glad

you took a peek?

Hop you find

what you seek.

The truth is lying

just beneath,

and it’s been waiting for you.
