Please See Me Through My Tears
You asked me 'How are you doing?'
As I told you, tears came to my eyes,
You immediately began to talk again,
as your eyes looked away from me,
Your speech picked up, and all the attention
you had given me went away. How am I doing?
I do better when you listen to my response,
even though I may shed a tear or two,
for I want and need your attention,
But to be ignored, because I have pain in me
which is indescribable to anyone who has not been there
I hurt and feel angry, so when you look away,
I'm again all alone with it.
