Do You Know Who I Am

Do You Know Who I Am

I was filled with wonder
As I backed away
He called me Poppy
Though I wore my face

He knew who I was
Likely always had
But had played along
That wolf so bad

What came next?
Did I need a hideout?
I waited for a growl
Expected a shout

But he stood and he smiled
And he let me go
What was he thinking?
Would I ever know?

I made my way home
Found the message he’d sent
‘See you soon’ he’d written
But which ‘you’ had he meant

Did he like me as Poppy
Or better as Red
Were we one and the same?
Was I out of my head?
