To Have Known You

Is to have fallen into a deep ocean

To have known you
Was falling into a deep ocean
Uncovering secrets
Secured and buried
You only revealed the surface
The rest remained hidden from the light of day
A photoshopped identity
Is what you portrayed

You hid behind your public face
For years
That’s the person I embraced
In time your true self showed through
Now I can say thank you
