Can you see me now?

I could feel your eyes on me
Your cold, dead eyes on me
I could feel the spittle
From between
Your clenched teeth
Spray against my cheek
I could hear your words of hate
Feel your fists slam into me
All I want to know is
Can you see me now?
Can you see me?
Set the stars alight?
I’m beyond your reach
But I always was
Can you see me now?
Did you ever see me?


  1. powerful. there is no revenge. only this. the power to affirm where once you were impeded from doing so. the power to sing without victims

  2. You need not forgive, or forget. You need to move on. You need to realize that it is not your fault – it was never your fault. You are not the victim, you are the victor. Thank you both very much guys.

  3. there is a wonderful moment in faulkner's the sound and the fury where the character benji (i think) says 'it's not our fault there's a curse on us it's not our fault.'
