Surface

Just beneath the surface
I’d see a glimpse
of it
of you

You’re good 
at keeping it
from most 

But with me
you let it slide 

Most saw
the boy next door 

Those sparkling eyes
fooled them

You were just
what they thought
you were

They saw the surface 
ripple

I saw 
the raging 
storm 

Just beneath the surface.
