Shattered Eyes

I walk around the person You call yourself Why can’t you see me? I see myself I walk over to you I thought you were my friend But we are not Never to the end When I walk up to you You just walk by A cold shoulder is my friend I like to ask you why But I already know the answer It’s as plain as can be You never really wanted to be my friend As I now can see How many times were you going to leave me out? Did you think that I would just take the hint? But now my vision is clearer No longer blocked with tint I see you for what you really are A truly horrid person You think you are better without me But it is you whose situations worsen Thank you for showing me The ugliness under your mask I guess I am better off You don’t need to ask I am happy You need not ask why I have a new friend Without a shattered eye She can see me Anytime of day I guess I’m not invisible You were just in the way
