    i look into your face
    i see pain and depression
    a tear the processes
    down the watered landscape of your cheeks
    i see the swelling of your eyes
    as many hours you have spent
    in mourning
    i feel your pain
    i seek to empathize to sympathize
    to understand where you are
    and yet i am left with realization
    that you suffer from self-inflicted wounds
    from your own hands
    bleeding
    crying
    dying
    regretting even your very birth
    dying
    crying
    bleeding
    praying for a rebirth
    crying
    bleeding
    dying
    hoping for a new day
    loving
    living
    flying
    above every circumstance you created
    i see you
    mirror, mirror on the wall
    oh why must i see me?

    Sometimes we can hurt ourselves in ways that others can only begin to imagine. Well put poet, I feel you indeed.
