Do You See Me? - Poem by Cynthia Silvera

you see the pain that lies in her eyes
but, alas her eyes are dry
she won't cry
no, she won't cry

you see the anger that burns from her eyes
the maddness that sets her eyes ablaze

you see the fear in her eyes
the smile she wears, is but a disguise

you see the love that use to live within
but she will never love again

you see the hope that is finally dead
she cannot trust for her heart has been bled

you see deaths cold hand has glazled her eyes
but no one saw her die inside
she won't cry
no, she won't cry

Nor will they

    Yes I could.
    Because you are
    A sensitive poem
    With a beautiful heart.

    With all my best wishes.
