Looking Through Your Eyes

What do you see
When you look at me?
Can you see past the scars,
The empty eyes-
The repeated lies?
Do you see I'm not okay,
Or do you only see another person,
Another day,
Slowly wasting as time ticks away?
Or do you see past these faults,
You get past my masks and walls,
You see"me,"
You like what you see.
So you say those words,
Only sounding so sweet
When from your lips they spring:
"I love you"
So now I must say
"I love you too,
Forever and a day"
