Poetry

Vision

“Beneath it all,
I see you for what you are.”

If only words could speak louder than actions. Maybe then I wouldn’t see the disdain you hold in your gaze. How you felt I was beneath you. Worthless. How you saw me as an object. A means to an end. But I see you. Beneath all the declarations of love. Beneath all the gifts. The promises. Beneath the compliments. I see you for what you are.
