Is it easier not to see me?

Arm extended,
pained, and painted
restrained, ill-fated,
reinforcing the gap.

Is it fear?
That onerous culprit,
slyly lurking about
the soul’s recesses,
perpetually postulating,
promoting propoganda
and plight.

Rigidly restrained,
boasting barricade,
taut and steadfast,
against all possibility
of seeing me.

Though the span
of space you
cling upon,
fixedly stares at me…
With hawkish reflexes,
I stare back, unafraid.
My vision clear and
unfettered by your
optical illusions.

I see you.

    I have to be honest. I don’t read a lot of poetry. I had to read it a number of times, not because of your writing but because of my wanting to completely understand it. My intrepation, which has a very high chance of not being what you intended, is that everyone can relate to this poem. Not sure if you’ve seen the movie but to paraphrase “Ferris Buellers Day Off”: The world moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop once in a while, you could miss it!” I wonder days if I make a difference and do people see me. Some times you get caught up just going through the motions and take your daily routine for granted. I’m worried about what is going on in my daily life that I miss what is happening around me. I will think of this poem and try to do a better job of “seeing you”.
