Why Don't You See Me?

By , Dover, MA

Why don’t you
see my declining grades
and think
I’m stressed
overwhelmed
Why do you think
I’m
procrastinating
It’s just
laziness

Why don’t you
see my tears
as a sign I’m sad
Asking for help
Why do you think
I’m
over reacting
emotional

Why don’t you
see me say no to food
and think
I’m just not hungry
Why do you think
that
when you can see
My Ribs

Why don’t you
see the cuts
on my arm
and think
This is my only way of coping
Why do you think
that the story
of the bike accident
was true

Why don’t you
see me not smile
and think
I’m just tired
Why do you think
that my depression
is just me
being a
Drama Queen

Why don’t you
see my loneliness
and ask about
the friends I used to have
Why do you think
I’m the one
who pushed them away
My Fault

Why don’t you
See me for me
Realize
I’m not the same person
I was
Why do you think
I won’t ever change
Won’t ever need help
Won’t ever make a bad decision
Won’t ever cry
Won’t ever
Take my life

Why don’t you
Try
for once
to see me
all of me
even the bad parts
Why don’t you see me?
