Do you see me there? Do you understand anything I say? Can you hear me? Can you see me? I keep asking but you don’t respond. Do you not think I can feel? I don’t understand you and you don’t understand me. I just want your love, to be loved. Take care of me, take very good care of me. Let me live a long life in peace and tranquility, and I will reward you with not only my gratitude, but my unconditional love. Just notice me….
