The Need To Be Seen

Many of us live a hidden life, where we hardly know how to be ourselves, how to live daily life. While when I see myself in a mirror when dressed and recognize that woman as my deeper and most real self, it is far from enough. I need someone else to see me and know me as Cigy, and bring me to life in her smile and words. I do exist!!!!! We do... Keep in touch...

You have pretty eyes Cigy. I would love to see more.

Hi Cigy, yes, we are all here to help support each other in any way we can. Someday I would hope that Jessica has the courage to come out in public also.<br />
<br />
Hugs, Jessica!

Thanks, Dee, heart-warming words! I really liked them.<br />
Yes, Yvonne, SP is a great poet... I wish she had had a longer and happier life...

I Wish I had me a Sylvia Plath<br />
<br />

Thanks, Yvonne; probably what I want is to be reflected with love. (I thought of that reading the following poem:<br />
<br />
Sylvia Plath <br />
<br />
Mirror <br />
<br />
I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.<br />
Whatever I see, I swallow immediately.<br />
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike<br />
I am not cruel, only truthful –<br />
The eye of a little god, four-cornered.<br />
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.<br />
It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long<br />
I think it is a part of my heart. But it flickers.<br />
Faces and darkness separate us over and over.<br />
<br />
Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me.<br />
Searching my reaches for what she really is.<br />
Then she turns to those liars, the candles or the moon.<br />
I see her back, and reflect it faithfully<br />
She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands.<br />
I am important to her. She comes and goes.<br />
Each morning it is her face that replaces the darkness.<br />
In me she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman<br />
Rises toward her day after day, like a terrible fish.

Cigy..The Reflection you see in the Mirror proves that you Exist, <br />
You do not need anyone else to prove are who you are are Cigy.....x :)
