Someone To See Me....

Why do I dwell inside myself,
afraid to ask for help?
Where others see life
I see only shadows.
Tormented by bleak thoughts,
hiding from insanity.
Relentless voices
shouting "I don't matter".
I want someone to smile,
say hello and ask
how I'm doing but
everyone walks on by
never seeing
me hoping they'll invite me in,
to be one of them.
Isolation becomes my refuge
convinced no one cares.
I'm lost and angry,
with a need to punish
and hurt, to inflict pain.
Because all I wanted
was someone to see me
