Hidden [POEM]

I’ve seen you
watching me
hidden
thinking that you had
ridden yourself
of my dream
for us
for the happily ever after
that we had
once upon a time
that was a treasure
that we lost
when we found ourselves
chasing
expectations
in our minds
and trying
to live
up to
the imaginations
of things
best left behind

but hidden,
in the way
of what we could have
had
had we not cared so much
about
what we thought
wasn’t there
or bad
for having had known
better
than
what was in our way

those hidden things
we never found
good enough
to say
