"There is no goor or evil, only power, and those too weak to seek it," - Lord Voldemort

I look at people,
And see nothing but lies.
Nothing but secrets buried,
Buried deep beneath the ashes of an internal flare.

I see something dying to be told,
Something that they are terrified to hold.

A dishonest deed.
A shameful act.
An innocent look.
An adulterous kiss.

I remember the good old days,
Where we all knew everything.
Everything about our family.
Everything about our friends.
Everything about ourselves.

But those days are long gone.
And now we are judged.
We no longer confide.
We only…hide.

This was inspired by highschool, and the thing's I've seen my friends go through.
