watching

By thesoftestdeath

she watches. 

silently. 

but she's there. 

nobody will ever see her. 

she wishes. 

she wishes to be seen.

but she knows nobody will ever look. 

because she is poison. 

she is toxic. 

looking at her is death. 

looking at her is depression. 

looking at her is seeing everything you've done wrong. 

looking at her is seeing the true part of ourselves. 

and we resent that. 

we resent the ones who make us see the most human part. 

so she watches. 

silently.

    Your conscious is showing I'd guess here TSD. Not sure if first or third person but works both ways. The fatal attraction that we push back in memory. Cheers and welcome to DP! - Dan

    Amazing how this can seem so personal but dubious at the same time
