Not That You Care

Updated on October 27, 2012

I am looking for something real

Not that you care.

Something tangible; something I can hold in the palm of my hand;

Like a box of promises filled to the brim with hope and expectation;

Or, in some respects, a sack of dreams --misty and surreal dreams;

Like the dreams that come to you in the early morning hours when it is almost time to rise;

These dreams seem so real

Not that you care.

I want to feel whole again; I want to experience life again;

I want to reach out and touch reality; I want to be me again;

Not that you care.

All I ask is for you to care once more; to believe that things can change;

Like the seasons change

Fall to winter

Winter to spring

Spring to summer

Summer to fall

An endless cycle of hope; knowing what to expect yet filled with expectation;

like the box that I want to hold in my hand.

Not that you care.

My world is broken. It has been shattered by reality.

A harsh reality that only I can bear to witness.

I want to fix so many things, but I feel helpless.

Not that you care.
