Can you see?

Turn around
Can you see
Through the pain
It's me

Shield your eyes
Can you see
In the gloom
It's me

Look closer
Can you see
Half hidden
It's me

Don't leave
Can you see
Almost broken
It's me

Come back
Can you see
All alone
It's me

Too late
Can you see
I'm gone
No more me

A very moving response to what is a very darkly emotional photograph.

Some definite pain here. I like the way you keep driving this forward.

This is nice, the rhythm and the story.
