Please see me.
I won't beg.
I won't get down on my knees.
It's not a very big favor that I ask of you.
Please.
I'm tired of being invisible.

I'm in a room full of people,

And there you are, I see you.

So many people and yet everybody walks by.

Your eyes scan past me, avoiding my gaze.

I scream,

Yet you don't hear me.

Nobody hears me.

My voice rings out like a siren.

It burns my ears and scathes my throat.

But yet you still walk past me without a single word.

I push you and wave my hands into your face.

Yet you don't see me.

Nobody sees me.

Suffering in this invisible trap,

I lay bloody and wounded on the ground.

I'm breathing so hard and yet you aren't there.

You're morphing me.

You're turning me into someone that I don't want to be.

All your time is put into my future.

Do this, do that.

What about what I want?

My words don't reach your ears.

I'm crying the tears that you've put into me,

The ones that aren't for you.

And there you are.

I see you with him,

Holding his hand, flirting continuously.

I scream and cry, I try to get your attention.

But you're too busy spending your time with him.

I feel so alone, so torn away.

I feel like you've ripped out my heart, and then you decide to just keep it.

In that eternal hole I bleed.

My hand is outstretched, my lips whispering your name.

The silent wind carry the words to your ears.

Yet you don't hear me.

Nobody hears me.

I wait for you, to tell you feelings.

I stand in front of you, I cause a ruckus.

Yet you don't see me.

Nobody see's me.

This pain inside of me builds up so much that now I'm on the bridge.

I'm jumping,

Falling,

Hitting,

Freezing,

Drowning,

Dying.

I can't breathe, just like before.

My lungs constrict,

They close into little shrivels of nothing.

I open my mouth to scream your name but it rushes in, the water.

I'm so numb, as I have always been.

You thought everything was ok.

When I told you before, the reasons for my mistakes,

I thought that maybe you understood.

I thought that maybe it would all change.

But my life has turned into embarrassment.

It has turned into a living nightmare.

Day after day I put on that mask.

I put it on just for you, mom.

And I wear it so that you won't see the pain,

and so that nobody else will see the pain.

Because even if I didn't wear that mask,

You wouldn't see me anyway.
