I see you……

I suddenly realize
the need
the desire
the want
to be in the forefront
everyone’s attention on you.
You fear you are invisible.
You fear that you matter not.
So 
play that role
sing that song
I see you
the real you 
beneath it all.
I am no longer blind.
No longer looking
seeing through rose colored glasses
despite
in spite of
this swirl of emotions
I realize……
I am not meant to be your lover.
I am not meant to be your soul.
I am meant to be your haven.
I am meant to be your truth.
I am meant to show you…..
what love really is.
I am meant to be
that one true love
lucky to be discovered 
once in a lifetime.
Showing you
showing me
what could be.
Denial.
Anger.
Draw the curtains.
Pretend not to see.
Pretend not to feel.
Push me away
push me to the side
but I see you baby
I see it all.
The warts.
The agony.
The fire.
Never
am I going to leave you
always I will be here
loving you
even when you believe 
you are not worth it..

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
