See (first published on my blog August 2014)

Can you see me?

 

Caught behind the cage

Of your expectations

I want you to see me

As more than a wounded bird

Flopping helplessly around

Each one of your I love yous

Collect myself in blue eyes

I want you to see

Every sentence

Swirling around and around in my gaze

I rattle my ideas

Against your one dimensional accusations

Until I am shaking your motives

Everything cracks under the right gaze

And my voice is my declaration

For you never owned me

In your shadow cage

I want you to see me

Unleashed and out of bounds

Scratching at your skin

Until my gaze pricks at you

Teasing at your ears

 

Can you see me?
