Do You See Me?

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.....

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
