Do You See Me? Poem by Peter Madden

I walk through the cold dark morgue..
to where you weep over me...
i walk upon silent feet...
reaching towards you..
my heart breaking at your pain...

do you see me? ...

i stand by your side at the grave...
wishing i could tell you i love you...
seeking to hold you in my arms...
making everything right again...
it hurts watching you suffer so...

do you see me? ...

i lay beside you in our bed..
watching you hold the picture of us in your arms..
sobs of grief like rain upon our faces...
i want to brush away the tears...
and heal your broken heart...

do you see me? ....

i sit beside you in the early morning light...
as you stare at the bottle in your hands...
i feel your dispair and your grief...
so i touch your cheek and you cry once more...

do you see me? ....

is it me that causing you this pain?
putting you through all this suffering?
maybe i should let you go...
let you heal and forget me...
so you can live once more...
as the woman i love not this broken shell...

please dont see me.....
