Can’t You See?


Can't You see that I'm tired?
Can't you see that I'm present?
Can't you see I'm trying?
Can't you see I'm shaking?
Can't you see that I'm gaining weight?
Can't you see that my eyes are full of shame?
Can't you see that I can never be who I once was?
Can't you see that I am still capable of love?
Can't you see that you are not standing beside me?
Can't you see I am afraid?
Can't you see my mind is cloudy?
Can't you see this is my last chance?
Can't you see that I'm sorry?
Can't you see me at all?
I'm lost within myself, I'm drowning.
Daily battles in my head followed by nightly terrors.
Guilt and shame haunt me
Death is not even an escape
Can't you see....I'm stuck?
