Can You See Me?

Once again I find myself

In a situation such as this.

Finding myself at a loss;

These things I’ve begun to miss.

Why my mind is running this way,

Is something I find unknown.

What is soon about to be said,

Is something that can’t be shown.

These questions that are stuck in my mind,

Are ripping me apart.

The only thing that I find hard,

Is where can I begin to start?

First of all, I’d like to say,

These might not be directed towards you.

However, you may soon find,

The ones that relate are a few.

 

Can you see how I trust you,

More than you will ever know?

Can you see how I’m your friend,

And definitely not your foe?

Can you see how you make me smile,

Even when I am sad?

Can you see why these thought are back,

And know why they are bad?

Can you see though my voice?

To you I tell no lies.

Can you see the truth behind,

My saddened dark brown eyes?

Can you see into my dreams

Where you invade every night?

Can you see into my thoughts,

This battle I continue to fight?

Can you see the pain I’m in

That you’re somehow linked to?

Can you see the tears I cry,

That somehow deals with you?

Can you see into my soul,

Where the true me really is?

Can you see into my heart,

That you know was never his?

Can you even see what I mean

Every time you talk to me?

Can you even see the way

I’m trying to leave you be?

Can you even see the way,

I care for you so much?

Can you even see how I,

Miss your careful touch?

Can you even see how I,

Wish to speak of love?

Can you even see the way,

I could send myself above?

Would you even care,

If I died right here, right now?

Would you even care if,

This were my deathbed vow?

Would you even care,

If I began to cut once more?

Would you even care if,

I was falling through the floor?

Would you even care,

If I lost everything I own?

Would you even care if,

I fell to the unknown?

Would you even care,

If I said “I love you”?

Would you even care if

I forever said “adieu”?

. . . Can’t you see me?
