Can you see?


She screams in pain, agony, are you listening?
Her cries resonate in her late night calls, just wanting to talk.
They echo every time she thanks you.
Her goodbyes linger, unsure if it is the last.

She drowns in sadness, can you see?
Her makeup covering her stained face.
As they look to you, begging, for you to look deeper,
her soul reflects through her shattered eyes.

A final farewell, sorrow filled, shielded by a smile.
A lasting touch, hesitation, please see her.
She fades away, hanging on and desperately hoping,
please see me.
