you think you know, but you look beyond it. all the while it stares you in the face. unmoving. unnerving. unnoticed. you stare right through.
until that one day when the focus shifts. and the background fades into the insignificance it was only meant for. and on that same day, it all becomes clear.
so you stare back, finding something unexpected. a feeling. oh. it was there all along.
