“A role”

I was playing a role.

That was all I did.

A role.

It wasn’t me.

It was never me.

I didn’t want anyone to know the real me.

They couldn’t know who I was.

They wouldn’t accept me.

I knew they wouldn’t.

I had to play the role.

And I knew I could play it well.

I knew they would accept me as long as I played that role.

And after a while that role became me.

That was who I was.

But underneath I knew the real me was still there.

Still lurking.

Hoping that I would one day release him.
