First we need to change the prefix.
The prefix for "I [to] you" is qa-.
Pronouns are optional and are used mostly for clarity or emphasis.
If you want to emphasis that it is YOU that I'm not seeing, then leave the SoH
Back to your question...
It can mean that. It is "I continuosly do not see you".
The english "still" in this case means "I continue to not see you".
So it works.
Canon examples containing "still":
DIHIvlaHtaHvIS DaH DIHIvnIS!
(Attack them now, while we still can!)
narghbe'chugh SuvwI' qa' taH may'.
If the warrior's spirit has not escaped, the battle is still going on.
Is the blood pie still warm?
This last one uses the -taH suffix like your sentence.
