The peril of wanting


I hide,
I elude,
I build,

Yet, They threaten to betray me,
To collapse this elaborate house of cards
Set against an unstable brick wall,

My energies perpetually expended,
There is just enough room for vague suspicion,
And terror of outright discovery,

Discovery, the great peril of want,
I yearn for its sweet release,
While at ease in its absence,

I am dangling precariously,
Posing unconvincingly,
Failing spectacularly.
