graffiti

it was an accidental confession
a schoolgirl scrawl
scratched with a fingertip
against an icy windowpane
in a moment of careless dreaming.
it wasn’t meant to be a revelation
and when you saw it, i hid
in the corner, my face in my hands,
in absolute, abject terror,
for though there are times
when your eyes seem to give you away
a part of me fears they know how to lie.
