You returned;
Looked me in the eye,
and saw
someone different.
I looked at you,
recognized you,
but I am some creature,
masquerading far,
and deep down
in your fading memories.

Oooh, can I ever return?
to my original shape.
Oooh, will you ever forgive me
for masquerading,
parading,
like I never knew you.

Look me in the eyes,
see me in this
agony's delight.

So leave me,
here, all alone.
So leave me,
I'm sorry.
I'm not
that person you knew,
years ago.
