Moving slowly

He moved towards me very slowly

Like a large planet

Like a slow roaming eye

At first he was an image on a video

And a voice

Then he was a friend

With interesting things to show me

Then he told me his terrible secrets

Secrets that were never spoken out loud

Secrets I didn’t want to hear

Secrets that electrified me

Then he was a body, a real person

And then later

So much later

He was a truth

I knew,

I just knew
