see me

why does it hurt
so much to smile?
why can't i just fake it,
for even a little while?

i dont like being seen
for all that i am
the world out there's mean,
rough and uncaring.

how do you see thru
all my tricks and twists?
do others see too?
and just keep quiet?

how many of you
can see the inside?
how many of you
see jekyll AND hyde?

am i that transparent?
does everyone see?
am i that cliched?
is it not just me?

and if you can see
why don't you speak up?
if youve seen my plea,
why don't you stand out?

just give me some hope,
throw me a f***** bone,
i'm at the end of my rope,
please don't
let
me
fall.

I know this piece rambles, and goes right from terror at being seen, to anger at being ignored, but since when has angst made much sense?

Meghan: Thanks! Most people I've had read this didn't pick up on that. I'm glad you did. :)

Wonderful poem. I like where it says "and if you can see why don't you speak up?" Like you really do want to be noticed even when you seem like you dont.

I really like this! Whether it rambled or not its still perfection to me. Once in a while i read a poem that captivates me until the very last line. A poem that by the time i get to the middle it doesn't leave me thinking, 'ugh how many more lines?!' This was that poem. You kept my attention... you should be proud :)
