He was a man of intrigue,
Mysterious to a fault;
So much so that he never opened up.
Closing off to many of us
Who only tried to care.
I was one of those
Quietly pushed aside.
To this day I still care,
But I wont stand here forever,
On the outside of his walls.
I’ll take my heart and find a way
Or else forget about it all.
