See Me

You look
But you don't see me
You stare
But you don't say "hi"
I cry
But you don't see tears
I punch
But there's no blood
I know
What you don't
I fall
There's no scar
All there is
Is me
Is that all
That you see
Is that look
Always going to be
On your face
Open your eyes
And see me

Hi Shaune,

I love this poem. It really stirs emotions in me because I have felt like this so many times in my life. I can connect to this poem. This is very heartfelt and awesome! Keep writing. You have a lot to speak about from the heart which is where the BEST writing comes from!
