As we drove along

The frost on the window

Blocking view

Of the outside

Of the truth

Covered

Hidden

When I look at you

I see the same

The same frost

It covers you

It engulfs your mind, your soul

We can no longer see

We can no longer tell

What is inside

Is now

Unknown

To those who only want a clear passage

Cannot see who you are

They only care

So why

Why do you shield them

Why do you put up the barrier of frost

Why do you…no…we were so close to getting through

I thought I had

I guess…

I was wrong
