Me, Boo Radley

A crack in the curtains,
A beam of light
My eternal night.

With no one to care
I stand here alone,
Wondering if
I’ll ever leave home.

In the beginning,
Right from the start
I never belonged,
I knew in my heart.

Unknown, unnamed,
It was always me
Being blamed.

Now this light
Falls on the floor
Tempting me
To walk out the door.

To see what I’ve been missing
To walk upon the grass,
To have the wind brush past my face
And not be blocked by glass.

But I know
This can never be,
So I close the curtains
And walk away.

I’m the man in shadows
That no one knows,
I’m the man in the house
Where no one goes.
