Empty.

I want, so much
for you to see me.
But I’m scared you’ll see
right through the layers
so carefully constructed to hide
all that remains to be seen.

Because when you truly see me
and discover what lies beyond this face
I’m afraid I’ll find my darkest space
through knowing eyes
who’ve seen the whole
of a truth I can’t be facing.

Yet it’s only when you see me
That I’ll ever really know
The path I’m meant to go
And whether there’s something actually hidden
Or if all I am is just
Empty.

  2. This is so well-written and beautifully expressed:

    “Yet it’s only when you see me
    That I’ll ever really know
    The path I’m meant to go
    And whether there’s something actually hidden
    Or if all I am is just
    Empty.”

  3. This poem made me think. I would love if you could write a poem replying. I would love it was from someone who loves her, and sees her insecurity but loves her completely. It would be so neat I think I think if it touched on how hard we can judge ourselves. Hugs! – David
