Ghosts of Loves Past

Steal me away from reality

With a touch of your insanity

Tug at my heartstrings one time more

Tantalize me with what I used to long for

 

These ghostly apparitions are figments of my mind

Just when I thought I left them all behind

They waft through my thoughts like a breeze of hot air

Knock down my insistence that I no longer care

 

Each one a bittersweet memory that seems renewed

Tempting me, taunting me, wanting to be pursued

They whisper sweet nothings into my ear

My thoughts and feelings become unclear

 

Fighting a wish for those I can’t own

I try to maintain my heart of stone

I Don’t Care

Repeat after me ,

And you will be free,

“I. Don’t. Care.”

And breathe in the air.

 

I chant “I don’t care”

When my friends desert me.

I chant “I don’t care”

They don’t know how they hurt me.

 

I chant “I don’t care”

When I see you stare lovingly at another.

I chant “I don’t care”

When you see me like just any other.

 

I chant “I don’t care”

When the walls I try to build up keep tumbling down.

I chant “I don’t care”

As in a sea of my own tears I drown.

 

I chant “I don’t care”

When something between us dies.

I chant “I don’t care”

Perplexed, I start to wonder between my cries.

 

I chant “I don’t care”

When my heart gets thrown to the sidewalk.

I chant “I don’t care”

As I put it back under a padlock.

 

I chant “I don’t care”

When people refuse to understand me.

I chant “I don’t care”

When as a bad person people brand me.

 

I chant “I don’t care”

As my eyes blur while writing my words.

I chant “I don’t care”

As a tingling feeling runs through my innards.

 

I chant “I don’t care”

Trying my hardest to actually believe it.

Because you know what my problem is?

I care too much.
