 THE REFLECTION OF A TORTURED SOUL

sparkle
They Don’t Care!

 

The words ... “THEY DON’T CARE”, are ringing in my ears!

Pain in my heart - blood stained tears!

 

People I trusted, who I thought had my back!

What was I thinking?  I must have been whacked!

 

I have never been in a darker spot!

I am physically on my knees!

But why is it that, not one of you, can hear my desperate pleas!

 

I feel so empty, abandoned, rejected, and confused!

Distrusted! Questioned! 

Hearing your doubt and contradicting views!

 

I am tired trying to prove myself,

Why would I lie about my health?

I would have taken a bullet for each and everyone of you!

Yet, I get sick ... and this is what you do?

 

My heart is heavy,

I sit here feeling numb!

Re-playing over our conversations,

Questioning what I have done?

 

When did I ever give you cause to question what I say?

I am fiercely loyal always!

 

I considered my friends to be my family! 

You were all I had...

But how could the people I loved the most in this world, make me feel so sad!

 

You question who I am? The very essence of me? You have stamped on my heart, but you won’t break me!

 

I see you now!

So much clearer than before!

My heart is now protected behind 4 reinforced walls!

 

You once reached inside me to squeeze the life out of my heart!

But my resilience was the defibrillator that re-started my heart!

 

I have mourned the loss of who I thought you were... you are now officially dust!

A person who clearly doesn’t care for me,  One I can no longer trust!
