Afraid of the Light

He hid himself away
She found him
At the back end of a day like today

She gave him
Food and water

She gave him
Clothes and shelter

Gave him some space
To think

She gave to him her kitchen sink

She was afraid of the light
She was afraid of what she did
When the sun shone
She could never see her reflection
In the water

She doubted she existed
She doubted she was ever here
In the first place
