Can you see it in his eyes?
the pain,
his lost emotions
that never go away?

Can you feel it in his touch?
his need for love,
for happiness...
that never seems to come.

Can you taste it in his tears
the salt,
the longing to be understood
to be someone...

Can you feel it?
do you want to feel it?
the endless pain,
that burns in his heart...


 I'd rather have someone hate me for who i am,than to have someone like me for who i'm pretending to be

~My reply is a two fold...First I'd like to say that your poem spoke to me more than most do.  I mean this.  I felt it,..it's like something I've seen before. Second,...uuummm, your signature thingy there...well...KIX!!! I love it,...it's great.

Tia-

Reading this poem was kinda of creepy. I felt as if you were talking about me and what I've felt for near four years now. You're a very talented poet indeed.

This is very haunting and poignant and sad.  I know these feelings much too well.  Good poem with a deep message.

I love this poem...it's everything I've always wanted to say but what I keep hidden and what I could never write down.  Keep up the good work!
