WOULD YOU CARE
Would you care?
If I slid a blade across my skin,
Would you care then?
What if I jumped off a cliff and drowned,
Would you wear a frown?
Is it sad that sometimes,
I want to be terribly injured
to see if you care?
Thinking while talking with
friends on a balcony,
wondering if I get pushed off
accidentally, what would you
Would there be fear in your eyes?
Would you run down the stairs
to see if I was alive?
Would you panic and wonder
what the world is going to be like without me?
Or would you feel... nothing?
Would you not even care?
You cant help me, theres nothing you can do
cause im already broken through and through
just leave me alone and ill disappear
no one will notice im not here
ill be a shadow on the wall
and none of you will even know at all
im breaking piece by piece
my end is nearly here
Would you even care if I disappeared?
