Poem: Hiding In Plain Sight

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Hiding in plain sight is a poem about looking at old photographs. She remembers how strangers exclaimed how wonderful it was to see two people so much in love. She cannot understand how he could let their love slip away. An emptiness touches her heart as she aches for those moments lost in time.

"Hiding In Plain Sight"

She stares at photographs
hidden in the drawer,
wondering how he was too blind to see
a genuine love,
hiding right there, in plain sight.

She remembers strangers
exclaiming how rare and refreshing it was
to see a couple so much in love.

A tear silently drips down her cheek,
an emptiness
touches her heart,
aching for those moments
lost in time.

you'll search for me inside of everyone you're with & i won't be found.
