People Look, But They Don't See...

People Look, But They Don't See...

A Poem by MusicLove93
"

It pretty much speaks for itself..it's about something nobody should ever have to experience..

"
People look, but they don’t see,
The pain welling up inside of me.
People listen, but they don’t hear,
The quiver in my voice of hurt and fear. 

I sit here in my corner as the days go by,
Just thinking of you and asking myself why?
Why did you do the things you did to me?
I didn't feel the same way, why couldn’t you see?

You tried to force yourself upon me,
And when I refused, oh how you made me feel guilty.
Every time you came close, I shivered in disgust.
You just couldn’t hide your blatant lust.

People look, but they don’t see,
The pain welling up inside of me.
People listen, but they don’t hear,
The quiver in my voice of hurt and fear. 

What was I supposed to do?
I love my sister, I thought you did too?
Now, my sister wishes I would die.
Because your coward a*s chose to lie.

Sure, now your life and marriage is fine,
But what of the life that used to be mine?
The pain you've inflicted cannot be forgotten, nor left behind.
The memory of what you did is forever burned into my mind.

People look, but they don’t see,
The pain welling up inside of me.
People listen, but they don’t hear,
The quiver in my voice of hurt and fear. 

Oh people look, but they just don’t see...

a good description of the hell people have to go through...long after the initial abuse is over. I totally get the...people look, but they don't see... It is the things we don't talk about that are always the real issues. Thankyou, I can always relate to this kind of write and have similar experiences to identify with it. Poetry can be a great outlet. Writing stories too...its a good way to let some of what bottled up inside...out. Great write. Thankyou.

Clean, Crisp, Piercing ,Droplets pooling in our eyes, blind in our love of self, blind in our love of meaningless weight , Balls this is good.

:/ This poem was very powerful and very, very sad. I feel for the writer, losing a loved one over a pathetic lie is deplorable, but what can you do? If you defend yourself you only look more guilty but if you admit to it, you commit a lie and hurt them even more. It's a sick trap laid out by a selfish fool and I'm sure someday soon that person will foolishly trap themselves in their own twisted truths. Very inspiring piece I especially likes the repetition of the the lines, "People look, but they don’t see,
The pain welling up inside of me.
People listen, but they don’t hear,
The quiver in my voice of hurt and fear."
As I read it, it echos in my mind and bounces back into my eyes causing them to swell with tears. People with eye's to look are often blinded by their need to see what isn't there and end up missing what really is. Thanks for a great read! Hope everything this is about works itself out and your beautiful soul finds peace to write on more happy subjects! :D

Thank you, and hope you keep up the excellent writing! :D
This piece is so sad. If this is from experience I'll hand my heart out to you....and then quite gladly beat the ever loving day lights out of the abusive a*****e(scuze my french and I could rant more but I'll stop here)...You let this disaster out and formed it into something that will reach out to people. Thank you for sharing this. For such a horrible story it was a beautiful poem.

The abusive character in this poem deserves an axe in the head.

God I can't imagine..if truth inspired this...then wow. Good to pen about this kind of stuff. Otherwise it can fester....and eat you up alive. So sorry that you were inspired by such emotion to create such a wonderful read.

Some look, some see, some just don't, or can't help, some of us find the situation way to close to home, and just find it way to painful to reach out and share their experience.

Nicely conveyed piece, sad, but well told!

I really am at a loss for what I'm feeling at this moment. The hurt and despair you already have...add the sister blaming you...on top of that he has the perfect life...damn, can I take a slug at him for ya??? I guess pissed would be a good word choice. This is one instance that writing can be a wonderful outlet..for a small spacd of time..whether or not you let anyone read it..you have placed hidden feelings out in the open...released them instead of fester. (I realize that this type of thing never goes away but I'm sure you see what I'm saying) Bravo to you for having the strength to share and also bravo for you trying to move forward, however small those steps may be... :) Amazing person you are...just amazing :)

Gosh, I can definately relate to this piece. I can feel the pain overwhelming this poem. You wrote well describing the inflicted agony that you went through. It's sad but the world can be cruel. Crazy things do happen and others just dismiss it even though they've been told or see it.. the world we live in.. is harsh. I really hope things get better for you and your sis. This is quite depressing but i understand your situation... I can relate, it hurts my heart too because i went through hell of my own for so long.. that when i remember... i end up crying. Writing poetry can be such an amazing outlet to get rid of the anger...the bundle of rage hiding inside you. Great write. And I pray that you are alright.
