She Hid Behind the Letter W

She held the letter W in her hands

Her eyes gazed forward

Her lips pursed

Behind it

She hoped it covered her wounds

Hiding them from the rest of the world

She always felt invisible

Yet believed all could see only that part of her

That she wished was buried deep

Away, unable to breathe

Never to see daylight

She hid behind the letter W

Hiding from the world

Safety not in numbers

Away from the eyes of others

In the end

She couldn’t hide from the only eyes that mattered

Trapped within herself
