I See

byAlessia Brio©

I see you.

No,
not the you
you want the world to see.

I see
     YOU:

the liar you
     denounce;
the sycophant you
     abhor;
the coward you
     despise;
the fraud you
     blast
with righteous indignation.

I see you
     writhe
on the altar of inconsistency.

I see you
     struggle
to be the you
you want the world to see.

I see you
     in me.
