A Poem I Wrote

I wrote this when I lived in NY. Going through the past brings up painful memories.

Will You Look at Me

Hey, will you look at me
I called to you and you looked away
That was a mistake
What are you–ashamed?
Am I moving up/out/around in circles?
I need to know.

Don’t stare too long in the dark
Your eyes may adjust but
You’re still blind
I have light inside me
I watched as you tried to put me out
I’m rising now
I’m standing on my two feet
I’m marching out

Look at me/See my face
You want to know me
But you can’t reach far enough to care
I took my place by your side
– Your smile was deception
I placed my warm hands to calm your demons
-Your words were never right
I stored your secrets away like treasures lost at sea
– You lied-lied-lied
And all I got from you was shame

Don’t get me wrong
I don’t need your heart
I don’t need your approval
I just want your truth
But this bullshit is an obstacle
It pulls you down roads and scares you with lies

Hello, will you look at me

  1. Hi there! This blog post couldn’t be written much better!
    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept preaching about this.
    I’ll forward this article to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a good read.

    Thank you for sharing! about LED Outfitters
