I’m right over here, why can’t you see me? I keep dancing on my own
My interpretation…. I think about those who left, friends no longer able to see me. The real me lost in the fog of chronic illness. All they could feel was pity, all they could do was judge. I was still me. I just got ill. I didn't ask for it, I didn't cause it, I… Continue reading I’m right over here, why can’t you see me? I keep dancing on my own
