Look at me. Tell me what you see. Dark hair Blue eyes Pale skin, Is that all? Look again. Look closer. Please, Look closer.
Do you see them, The scars The bruises The cracks? The shadows, So many shadows. When I look in the mirror They're all I can see But you say that I'm fine, Am I fine?
Please. Please see me Please hear me Please.
Can you hear them On my tongue, The pleas The cries The screams? They sound so loud In my head, And taste so bitter Always sitting there, A sodden Seething choking pill That I can't swallow, But can't spit out.
Do you understand? Please. I just need someone To see me.
