What do you see?

Who do you see when you look at me?
Do you see joyful laughs and happy smiles, and think oh what a pretty doll we see?
Do you see the hidden tear and frightful fears, and shake your head and that broken thing?
Broken doll or Barbie doll, which do I appear?
What do you see when you look at me?

    I see a very complex and intricately designed young lady that is far beyond her years and for that reason the girl in the poem has difficulty connecting to people because their ignorance is loud and clear whereas her wisdom is beyond her years. Very intuitive and sensitive to all things. Very perceptive and very artsy. This comment is to all the poems I've read as a collective whole. What lies beyond the flesh is much more valuable as it takes only one quick moment to rip the outward beauty away that this world so holds onto. Keep penning your thoughts. =) (Report) Reply

    A short, beautiful poem this is!
    'What do you see when you look at me? ' - A question not always asked, but always 'a soul in love' wants to inquire from her/his lover.
    Hmm...Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
