Do you even notice

********************************************************

Do you even notice – the sadness in my eyes

The silent tears I cry

Do you even notice

That I know

You will never change

Do you even know

That I know

That I have already begun letting go

Do you even notice

how I left my heart broken

and how I didn’t leave anything unspoken

And yet

Nothings changed

And it’s still not the same

I just am lost in between

What we were

And what we are

Which is all so confusing

And consuming

Do you even notice -  the sadness in my eyes

The silent tears I cry

If I slip away without saying goodbye

Would you even miss me

Would you even notice

if I was gone

    Thank you STEPHANIE ~ you are an elegant poet and such a fragrant Lady ~ it is a tragedy that you have to write such a poem. Some Men are mad and do not value the Love of a Lovely Lady. As you know ~ They do not notice ~ Sadness ~ tears ~ broken hearts ~ confusion and even parting ~ so so sad. Thinking of you and praying for you ~ Love BRIAN

    This poem is about suicide. We recently lost someone very young to this horrible event. I believe all people consider this at some point or another and I feel like there is pattern of thinking that escalates these thoughts. This poem is those thoughts and unanswered questions.

    I would just like to say that this is a wonderful poem, though sad, it was so full of emotion and I could just feel the pain. you are a wonderful poet Stephanie.

    Lovely poem, but I did not get the suicide. I saw it as breaking a relationship, which I admit suicide does permanently. Yes, there are subtle signs of serious depression we miss. And there are other signals that when we reflect back, we kick ourselves for not answering the obvious cry for help.
