The Blues

You don’t see
and I can’t make you care
about the darkness
welling up inside me
spilling out as invisible tears
with glistening tell-tales
of an every increasing ache

You don’t see
and I can’t make you care
about the abyss
opening up inside me
swallowing me piece by piece
with little bites taken
from my soul day by day

You don’t see
and I can’t make you care
about the darkness
numbing my heart inside me
freezing my soul to brittle glass
with frost bites casting shadows
under my haunted eyes

       never soothed
       never healed
       never noticed

Too many things to do
Too many things more important
Too many things and every day life

       intruding
       distracting
       separating

You don’t see
and I can’t make you care.

You don’t care
and I can’t make you see.
