Inner Demons

You’ve seen him.

He is in your class.

He is in the cubicle next to you.

He rides the subway.

You’ve seen him in the store.

You’ve seen him, but you haven’t really seen him.

You don’t know about him crying.

You don’t know about his tossing and turning each night.

You weren’t aware of his inner demons.

It’s not your fault. You just didn’t know.

So when you heard the news, it shocked you.

His inner demons were too much.

You saw him in the store.

He rode the subway.

He was in the cubicle next to you.

He was in your class.

You saw him.

You saw him, but you didn’t really see him.
