Why Love Me


Am I beautiful?
Am I hopeful?
Why aren't I invisible to you?
Why see the shining light in my eyes
why see the glowing goldness of my hair
The monster for who I am
the cries of sorrow beat from my heart
Why love me
The songs screech from my lips
The willow trees shed it open light upon me
I am hideous
I am hopeless
Yet you still love me
but why
is it the open wits of my mind
is it the love of a true friend hiding
Now I realize it is not you who loves me
but me who loves you
I Love You
