They Don't See

They Don't See

A Poem by Brianna.garcia

I step outside to see all these faces staring at me
Telling me who and what I should be
Their words cut deep within me 
But they don't see
They don't see what they are doing to me

All my life I've been told what to do
what to wear...what to say
While all my thoughts pile up
Filling my head
But they don't see
They don't see what they are doing to me

For years I've tried to please everyone
Hoping to feel excepted
wanted
loved
But I never got anywhere
I tried and tried but everything I tried never satisfied
killing me inside 
And they didn't see
They don't see what they were doing to me

Then one day you came along 
I figured you'd be just like the rest
We talked
We laughed 
But you didn't see
You didn't see what they had done to me

As months fly by and I let you in 
You're the first person to see
You saw all my pain, sorrow and suffering
And for once in my life someone saw 
Someone saw all they had done to me

And as I opened up to you
You opened up to me 
You showed me your brokenness 
That no one else had seen 
not even me 

And as our relationship grew 
We stopped caring about what people thought 
We were free from our burdens 
Because I saw in him what he sees in me 
I see the one person who loves me just for me 
just like he

And though life had other plans for us 
I still think about him everyday
I think about the one person who cared for me 
The one person who loved me just for me 
And because of you I was set free
Left with the memories of what was done to me.

I absolutely love this. Sometimes it's difficult to maintain a steady flow with longer poems, but you did very well.
