365 Days Poem Challenge Day 06

Are you blind?
Because you seem to miss
My crying, my calling our for help;
My fetal position, my scars that light my wrists;
My saggy eyes from sleepless nights;
My bones showing through because my starving myself.

What if you tried, just once,
To look at me.
To actually look, deep inside me,
To see what I SEE!
TO FEEL WHAT I FEEL!
WOULD YOU LAUGH THEN?!
WOULD YOU STILL TORMENT ME?!

No. No, you wouldn't.

    You have an amazing way of writing down such intense emotions and experiences that I struggle with. I can not write about it as you do.
    This is a painful poem, but in sharing it, I hope that others who are not as good as expressing themselves can read this and identify and use it then to help them cope with hard things. (I am not good with words, sorry)

    It's good to read poetry from you once more and I look forward to reading more.
    . :D

  2. I've often wondered how differently people would act if they actually knew my thoughts and felt what my heart and soul feel.

    It's... it's one of those mind-boggling "what if's" that get me nowhere, but that I wish would get me somewhere.

    This is really sad and beautiful. I think that I sort of know how you feel.

    Thank you for sharing this.
