166. I Guess You Really Don’t Care

man-walking-away

Did I hear you wrong or something?

I thought I heard you say you care?

And I would have given anything,

To hear it said again somewhere.

What has changed from last we talked?

You used to speak and share?

Now all you have done is walk,

Many times past me while I stare.

Why are you so distant now?

You used to touch my hair.

You hardly even touch me now;

Seem to forget I’m there.

You once told me you cared to know…

Everything ’bout me, made aware?

So why did you so quickly sow,

The seed of “I don’t care”?

  1. This is so beautiful but so heartbreaking at the same time, not all people give up caring. Keep your heart full of hope and your smile bright as trust. Take care xx really a wonderful poem
