“Within and Without”

Everyone
is looking at me.

I almost wonder
what they see.

A servant girl
who would contort and bow.

And the someone different
who stands before them now.

Straight line bent into a corner
sharp and tight.

A golden ray
transformed into the night.

How much
do they know?

Will they miss me
when I go?

I can’t help
but smile.

Sweetness hiding
something vile.

Now I can match
each and every stare.

Because finally
I don’t care.
