See Me

by Lakesha Jenkins

Don't look at me with those eyes...full of endless devotion
I don't deserve it, won't live up to it 
I will only let you down
Don't talk to me with that voice...laced with need 
I am unable to fulfill, don't want to know what it is you desire
I grow tired of trying to be the embodiment of your fantasy
I am desperate to be seen as what I am 
Who I am 
Who am I?
I am adrift in a sea of circumstance
A breeze on a hot day
I am rhapsody, the endless rhapsody 
I timeless, endless, enduring pain
I am an empty vessel, full of nothing
Can't you see me....
I am a mirror image of what you hope to gain
Don't talk to me, you don't want to hear the words I have to say
Your ears are cloaked in memories 
Stop trying to remake me into something else
I am the original me, I do me best
Screaming loudly, See Me!
