i wondered why not
to turn around and look
i did and was

The first lesson is to be still
the next is to wait
while you look long
and listen deep
that you might love all the more.
'There's only one lesson in painting, and that is to look." Louis Wain.  
In life, the lesson is similar.

Look at you
Looking at me too

Look at you
Love,
Beautiful and true

Look at you
with love
Radiant and pure
  
Look at you
in love
Begging for the cure

Look at you
broken
Look at you
bent  

The key to love is not in breaking,
But in how we look again.

internal seeing
is formed by external things
look around close now

Even when I win I still lose in the eyes of you

i scroll through the contacts on my phone
and realise there is no one i can call
nobody i can text
people ive had for 7 years
maybe more
their care for me has gone void
and i can sense it
can't you see?
it's all superficial  
every conversation
every look
it is all superficial
and i can blame anyone and anything for it
but none of that will change the truth and none of it
will gift me a new outcome

so now i sit alone
in a void room and i wonder
who will notice
who will care
when i am all but gone

for they will notice when i take my last breath
but nobody notices the moments before
not from afar
it hurts to look around and realise youve lost everyone you still love

yesterday
in blurry sight I discerned
the shape of your face-
an ink kissed by a drop of water-
and I thought I cloud draw you
a thousand times

today
I woke up and you weren’t here
and I thought I’d rather look at you
a thousand more
I catch the dust
Flying it up on the paper
Getting throw to be fast
Let it go then after

I draw my feel
Being good on the sketch book
Painting its to be so real
But nobody wants to look

I see myself
In the middle of the sky
Trying to go down
And never try to fly

Please notice what I've done
My pride is hurting from the things that
I spent hours on
Instead the ones I barely think of
are liked more above the rest
In fact the ones I barely think on
to me are just grotesque
See what I can really do
'A river is a thought of defiance
A flower the hated love between the two'
See what I can say, draw, and write
What I hear and know
Please tell me that you love them and me
Please do not let me go

how you can look at me that way and in the same breath say you feel nothing
