Look at me now

eyes2Look at me now
can you see
I’m made of glass
and sheets of ice
that slowly melt
at your glance and touch?

Look at me now
will you believe
that I’ve gone to hell
and earth and heaven
then all the way back to hell
because of you?

Look at me now
and tell me
that you see me
that you see the devil that was me
and the angel that is me
and the human I’m struggling to be.

Look at me now
Do you really see me?
‘Cause I badly want to know,
What you see when you look at me.

    “and the human Iā€™m struggling to be”
    we, writers, probably stuck in the same feeling of reality. those lines are similar to mine
    “being human is my eternal struggle” in my “I am not Her” šŸ™‚

    you have such a beautiful piece in here. thank you for checking me out šŸ˜‰
