See Me

See me as I have seen you. See me and see my flaws and say they don’t matter. Look into my eyes and see the darkness that hides and don’t run from it. Tell me it’s beautiful and that you’ll help me see the light. See all that I have seen and then hold me until I can cry no more. I don’t ask or want much. I just wish to be seen. Seen in a way that no one has ever cared to see me before. I want you to see me for who I am not who you want. See me and see that I don’t need to be rescued; just given a helping hand. The only way you can see me is if you truly see yourself.
