Mother can I read this to you?
I wrote it. Oh how proud I am. Look! It has a lot of views. Took me a while but I made it perfect! Oh Mother look it's trending! I feel better now that I wrote it, can I show you?

Ugh one...

Never mind it's not as good as I thought it was. It needs work. They just look at my poem because it crosses their eyes. They don't actually like it. Why do I write. Why did I even wake up this morning.. I'm sorry for bothering you.

i find it ironic and funny
how you accuse me
of not caring
about you
because when
have you ever cared about me?

I'm glad he looks happy.
Really, I am.
I hope he has a wonderful life.

A life without me.

Clearly, he's just fine.
He's doing dandy.
He's got a girlfriend, and wonderful friends.
Why would he need me?

That's right,
He doesn't.

He's doing fine.
And he doesn't care.

He doesn't care.
Not about me.
Not one bit.

I don't know why he hates me so much.
I must've done something terrible.
But if course, he's not going to tell me.
He's too stubborn.

I was a friend, who genuinely cared about him.
Sure, we had a complicated history.
But I cared about him.
Isn't that worth holding onto?

But his life is better now.

Because now...

It's a life without me.
Just... No.

The worst part about all of this is that you don’t even care anymore. I’m being completely ignored by the person who's supposed to always be there for me and you don’t even realize it…

You say you're there for anybody
& only a phone call away

But where were you at 3am
When I couldn't breathe
& held that blade to my wrist

You care for everyone else
Except the one person who needed you
I needed you

You did nothing
Walked by me crying in the halls like I was a ghost
& if I choose to put this blade
To my neck instead of my wrist
& end it all tonight

I'm sure you'd laugh
& be perfectly ok
With the fact the ****** ***** is gone

So don't say you care
When you've made it obvious you don't

Look me in the eyes and tell me you don’t care.
You never did and never will.
That’s what I live for baby.
Those words in that voice
Screaming out “Don’t you see?!”

Look me in the eyes and say those things to me.
That’s what I want.
That’s what I need.

Don’t pretend you care,
Or that you’ll always be there.
I know you won’t.
I know the truth,
Even if you don’t.

Just say those little things right in my ear,
And give me a reason to end this all here.

If you don’t, I’ll just go on
The same old way I always have,
Living like this
With the tears and the slits.
That’s what I live for baby.
That’s how I live with this,

Knowing you don’t care,
You never have and never will.
Well darling, that’s enough to ****.

m.c.c.
