Can you see me?
Agony brimming in unshed tears
Can you hear me?
Knotted stomach screaming silently
Slumped shoulders desperately appealing to your sensitivity
Can you feel me?
Across the chasm between my hurt and your lack of understanding
Behind the wall of your indifference
Locked in the frigid embrace of your single-mindedness
Has your selfishness blinded you, as my long-suffering silence has ambushed me?
Is it that I am invisible?
Is this fate confronting me?
Can you see me, hear, or feel me?
