Look at Me

Look at me.
Just look at me.
This whole time I’ve been waving my arms
Trying to get you to hear
The words I’ve been saying.
The words I’ve been screaming.
But, no.
You’re deaf.
You’re mute.
You won’t turn around and look,
Long enough to realize,
I’m still standing here.

I never said, “Slow down.”
I never said, “Don’t go.”
I never said, “Stop.”
I screamed, “Look.”

Did you realize who I am?
Did you hurt me?
Did you break my heart?
