Can You See Me?

Sisters

There are times when I wish all the baggage would just fade away
All the missteps
All the competition
All the hurt feelings, past betrayals or misunderstandings
To hell with rivalry

And we could just be
like we were

Little girls in love

With life
with our parents
with each other

Not women fighting
for boundaries
and identity
with judgment
in the shadows of each other
for approval

. . .and yesterday’s hurts

Forgetting our limitless connection
and aging mirror image

Wishing you knew
that you’re the closet thing I have
to him
to her
to it

Can you see me?
