Do You See Me?, a poem by Jane Bradshaw at Spillwords.com

Look beneath the façade.
Do you really see me?
Or do you see brushstrokes.
An unfinished masterpiece.

The splashes and flashes.
Cutting across the misery.
Colours spattered carelessly.
Tapestry of a misspent life.

Am I still here?
A flicker amidst the gloom.
Is there space in your heart?
For a perfectly flawed artwork.

Jane hails from the distant shores of Darwin, in the Northern Territory of Australia. She has lived there all her life and has raised three young Adults. After 7 years as a Loans Officer and 6 years as a Rates Officer Jane found herself at university, studying to be a Primary School Teacher. Now in her fifteenth year of teaching, she has dropped all the way down to teach preschool children. They certainly keep her fit, active, and on her toes. Jane has been a part of a poetry writing group for over three years and a short story writing group for over two years. Her passion for writing began in high school. She writes because she must. She has been published in four Anthologies now, and one day she hopes to have her own collection of poems and a novella published.
