"Talking without thinking, is to no talk at all"


I'm screaming
In a room full of people
Why don't you care?

My heart is breaking
Into a million pieces
Why don't you care?

I'm cutting
The blood sliding slowly down my palms
Why don't you care?

I haven't eaten
In almost a week
Why don't you care?

I'm crying
Harder then I ever have before
Why don't you care?

I'm fighting
A battle between my life and my death
Why don't you care?

I'm running
Away from my problems, my life
Why don't you care?

I'm shaking
I can barely hold my own
Why don't you care?

I throw things
Breaking them against the wall all you do is stare
Why don't you care?

I want to scream at you,
Beat you,
Neglect you,
Hurt you,
Make you cry,
Cry like me,
Why don't you care?

I want you to feel
Feel what I feel
Why don't you care?

You don't care,
Because you don't see
You don't see me
You don't see my tears
You're passive

I want you to feel
Feel your heart breaking
Like I can feel mine
I want you to feel the ache
So I can look on
But the difference between you and I
The one thing that makes you and me different,
Is that I would care.

I would care
Because seeing you hurt
Hurts me

Why doesn't seeing me hurt
Hurt you?

So let me ask you this....
Why dont you care?

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
