I wrote this when I lived in NY. Going through the past brings up painful memories.

Will You Look at Me

Hey, will you look at me
I called to you and you looked away
That was a mistake
What are you--ashamed?
Am I moving up/out/around in circles?
I need to know.

Don't stare too long in the dark
Your eyes may adjust but
You're still blind
I have light inside me
I watched as you tried to put me out
I'm rising now
I'm standing on my two feet
I'm marching out

Look at me/See my face
You want to know me
But you can't reach far enough to care
I took my place by your side
- Your smile was deception
I placed my warm hands to calm your demons
-Your words were never right
I stored your secrets away like treasures lost at sea
- You lied-lied-lied
And all I got from you was shame

Don't get me wrong
I don't need your heart
I don't need your approval
I just want your truth
But this bullshit is an obstacle
It pulls you down roads and scares you with lies

Hello, will you look at me
