Poem Questioning How Much You Care

I wrote this when I felt so frustrated. I was then inspired, and the lines just came to me. I think other people can relate to my poem too.

How Can You Say You Care?


Published: March 2016

Another day, another hour, another minute,
Another smile, another tear I thought was worth it.
Another wound that's hard to heal and hard to close,
Another path I have to take, not something I chose.

A year passes by, day after day,
Full of tears and pain, there's nothing I can say.
Been trapped for so long, can't take anymore.
I begin to wonder, are you still worth fighting for?

This state I'm in, this feeling of pain,
I question myself, what's there to gain?
Here in my head, here in my mind,
There's no reason there my heart can find.

I love you too much, it's been too long,
My heart's screaming out, "Everything's wrong!"
And yet you don't seem to care,
And I know you know this isn't fair.

Could you be any more insensitive?
You're making it so hard to believe.
You say you like me, please, as if!
If I leave you, you'd be relieved!
