  • How Do You

    You have eyes
    that see right through me.
    But still,
    you’re here.
    Unafraid of what you’ve seen.

    I’m jealous
    of your composure
    as all I seem to be able to do
    is break down and
    crumble away
    right in front of you.

    I try to be brave
    and stand up beside you,
    but I always find myself
    getting pushed down
    to my knees
    by my feelings.
    So, here I’ll ask you
    just what it is,
    that makes you
    still able to look at me,
    let alone…
    love me?

    Self doubt crossing what could be good. Sad, yet so real. Well written, PoW!

      Aha, my gosh... thank you for catching that! I didn't see that at all! Hey, the best way to proofread is to have others read it I'm glad you liked it, thanks again!

    You really painted an emotional picture with words, PoWs! Great job portraying the gnawing torment of self-doubt! Like Muttabo1sd said, it so often crosses what could be good.
    Oh, and I love your profile pic...
