Why Do I Care

Why do I still care about you when you don't love me? 
The eyes bleed, the heart aches everyday, 
Your memories flash back with vengeance, and
leave me helpless on the ground, writhing in pain.

Why do you still come and haunt me? 
In my dreams, so loud and vibrant -
as if it was real and I want to get your touch, 
Yet a huge barrier separates our two worlds.

Why does your voice still ring in my ears? 
A thousand sounds can't drive it away, 
I shut my ears trying to impede, it only gets louder -
and my soul burns for that was the sweetest tone….

Why am I still alive even if you are not here? 
To stand as a pillar as a testimony to our failed love, maybe -
a living example of a body already lifeless
But the night seems long and the walk seems hard….
Why do I still care about you when you don't love me?
