Sumyanna Writes

woman (2)

I wonder
if they are looking
can they see me here
. . . alone?
do they see my scars
hidden deep
or do they only see
this cage of skin and bones
for many cannot see
many cannot see
the tears
the pain
of others’ lives
they look away
they look right past you
and you are swept out
with the tide
adrift
alone
like the sands
swept under
and you find yourself
seeking
someone to understand
I wonder
if they are looking
can they see me here
. . . alone?
do they see my scars
hidden deep
or do they only see
this cage of skin and bones.
