Piercing The Sky, A Book of My Poems
Author: Neil Evans

Chapter 24
I Don't Care

This is kind of a step back in my work. I don't think it's too good, but, hey, it's poetry. This was made using the remnants of my previous relationship--oh the pain it had caused me on those long days! Well, I decided, since it's been quite a while since it ended, I'd use what little feelings I have left from that relationship to make a poem. July 27th, 2010, 5:00 AM, I Don't Care

I've died maybe once,
I've died maybe twice
And yet I still walk
And yet I still talk

Why doesn't the pain go away?
Why doesn't the rain go away?
The clouds are crying
The heavens are dying

How does the world keep turning?
Why does the world keep going?
I don't know, I just don't know anymore
I want to know, I just want to know

How am I still walking when my heart exploded?
How are you still smiling when you crushed me?
How can you go on when I can't even breathe?

I never died once,
I never died twice,
And, yes, I still walk
And, yes, I still talk

I think the pain went away
I think the rain went away
The clouds are smiling
And you are crying

Why does my smile never leave?
Why do you think I still care?
I don't know, I just don't know anymore
I don't care, I just don't care anymore
