Mistikman, this is such a powerful piece of writing, and something so many people can relate to, I think.
Love, to me, is drawn to the beauty that is shining from within you. Love recognizes and illuminates further that beauty, that presence within.
There have been times when I haved looked in the mirror and was able to see very little of who I really am...it was as if I was invisible, and it was because I "felt" invisible, and used, and uncared for. It is something that I still have to consciously remind myself of at times...that I am not invisible, and that I am okay and will "be" okay. And so must you, Mistikman. You are going to be okay, and you are definitely a beautiful person, in my eyes. (And you write some exceptional poetry!)
