Tied

There aren’t many people there for you,
Remember that.
	You can be in a dry heaving heap on the floor and 
Nobody 
Will know.
Much less care.
	Do you understand the dangers of knowledge?
Do not bring this pain into their lives,
They do not deserve this.
	You do.

My soul is not bound to yours
	You can have your life for as long as you dream
I will not pull you down with me
	Just sit from the sidelines and appreciate you are not me
You are not breathing my air
You are not seeing through my eyes
You do not feel from my hands
	You are not me.
Appreciate your life and your mind and I will
Appreciate the way I am
Still breathing
Still feeling
	The blood in my veins is still
Flowing through the course of 
My body.
	I love you
And maybe you will be able to reciprocate
But for now I am content with your
Attention.
Love is unnecessary when I see your 
Beautiful
Blue eyes
Through mine
Thank you
Thank you

I like this. The title contradicts the structure of your poem. But the contents, the words tells a story that makes you understand why this is the case. cool. me likey!
