Try not to look away

He will say to leave him outside of the frame,he’s too afraid to sleep.

He’ll stay awake through life,

roaming the halls and searching

for what he lost years ago, and

his peace of mind

his heritage

Freedom to just be.

He’ll keep looking

Not seeing the danger

gathering around him like water

engulfing a small cracked boat in the sea

He doesn’t know when it happened, but you

you always saw it coming, heard

the trickling before it began

rushing, and the warning

he’s drowning,

it has been ringing in your ears

all this time.
