Star shaped tears stain my face

Unseen

By the changing world

Tears for me

And tears for him

But mostly tears for them

Tears for what is more than me

Tears for wisdom

Tears for faith

Tears for every lovely face

In their shadow I lie

Wishing they were somehow worse

So I knew he could never be happy

Without me

But that is false

For I am the lesser

Yet it doesn't even matter

For eyes don't wander toward me

I am the unseen
