What Do You See

Poem By Ardimus Caldwell

What do you see
When you look at me
Look deep in my eye's
Do you see a young man
Do you see just a man
Do you see an artist
Do you see this poet
Or all the pain I've kept inside for so long
Never wanting to to come out
Afrid of hurting the ones i care for the most
Pushing people I love away the fartherest
Maybe
The good times that I've shared
My mom's kiss, her love,
My first love, truly my love, my one and only
My 62%, my everything, my all
How I love them both so
Tell me what do you see
So i can close my eye's and rest without
Having to think about what i am
What do you see

Comments about What Do You See

I love the ending! It seems to begin with curiosity... but it's clearly insecurity by the end. great read.

The Worst Thing

The worst thing
is holding on to someone
who dosen't want to be held on to
a caged bird

To The Girl That Makes Me Smile

look me in my eyes
whisper silent sweet notes to me
let them escape your mouth
let them so soft that my ears lean forward

Alone On This Road

Riding in this car unknowing what's out there
Confused
Not lost yet
Nobody behind me or in front

A Quite Heart Beat

For the heart is strong
a powerful muscle within the body
but out the body
when given to another

Fearful Lover

I don't want to worry about losing you
Being to socially connected to misguiding networks that we shape our lives to
Take a step back into the 1800's and do this like real people use to do
Instead we hide behind our self pride and become scared of getting hurt
