I See

I See

I look up and see you
I look down and feel you
All that comes is tears
there is not an excuse
just an emptiness
a utter failure
all I can see is you
hands crossed
face of eternal peace
but the truth is hidden
to the many that glance in
but not to me
I see the truth of fear
despair reeks from you
I see that it wasn’t your time
No matter what you did
you couldn’t stop
the reaction came
I love you
that is why I can smell
your despair

    When we love someone, we can feel what they feel. Really good!

      Thank you so much. I’m glad you enjoyed the poem. This was one of those poems that didn’t really make sense to what I was writing about until I read it ha.
