The best place to hide
is right in front of you.
It seems your eyes see trough me,
it matters not what I do.

I am not faded in the background
not a shadow in the dark.
I am the one standing close
ready to leave a mark.

To express my existence
the thing I so clearly need.
But I cannot find the words
so I let you lead.

You lean against me,
feel the rough of all my skin.
But you do not see me, 
I do not let you in.

So I remain hidden
in the plainest of sights.
Taking centre-stage,
but avoiding the spotlights.
