You Get Me

You understand

while I choose to remain

behind the lens of the camera

rather than

in front of it

I still appreciate

photos of myself,

but unlike yours

candid and carefree,

mine are meticulous

with my camera carefully positioned

at just the right angle

to be my mask

protecting the reality

of the thoughts in my head

reflecting through my eyes

which I only allow

you to see

-POE(MS)
