Why should I care for you?


Why anymore should I care for you?
When you don’t love me anymore
Why should I waste my time waiting for you?
When you won’t come ever to my door

Am I only to care of your woes?
Why I should walk in your shoes
When you scratched always my wounds
That I reached the verge of death
That my life neglected to take breath

Still I am in daze why you did this
I was bliss for you then, isn’t it?
Why then you kept on hurting me
Was I for you a nut or part of glee?

Was it my mistake that changed my life?
Every instant I am buried in ocean of grief
You trampled my dreams, left me to suffer
Why I can’t recover from that emptiness?
Why I’ve become merely a fragile body
Seems alive but a shadow which is lifeless...

    no two peoples hurt and pain can ever be the same
    and no person should be a whipping post for another.
    you have the reader feel your pain.

    It expresses alot of thought and feeling, it made me feel your own feelings and I was dragged in by your choice of vocabulary. Excellent work. (Report) Reply
