I wish you could look through me
and see my pain and tragedy.
I wish you would consider
what is making me so bitter.
With each and every sorrow I digress
yet it’s something you still don’t address.
You walked away amid my pain and strife
saying “I hope you have a happy life.”
I paste on a smile and hide the tears
and say goodbye to all our years.
I try to move on, but I just can’t seem to
for I always find myself thinking of you.
I think of all the pain you didn’t see
and wonder if you think of me.
I wish you would acknowledge and apologize
for not seeing all the tears I cry.
Maybe if you saw into my heart
you would decide we shouldn’t part.
