See through

See through my eyes
right into my pain
and recognize what others
hush up, distort, shy away from.

Crash through my smiles
right into the truth
and tell me it is alright
to weep in your presence.

Hear through my words
right into my soul,
extract my desperate screams
from carefully draped metaphors.

Reach through my heart
right into my void
and for once make me feel
whole.
