That is you.

I know it.

You thought it was a secret,

clung to it,

revelled in the glory of it.

Joy to the world.


Trust it’s not the only thing.


Oh, baby blues sparkle.

You see the darkness,

and turn your back.

No slackers here.

No secrets sneaking from those cracks.

Oh, I know.

That’s you.
