Can'T You See? Don'T You Care - Poem by Fernando Alvarez

Can't you see? Don't you care
i want to die?
Can't you listen? can't you hear
My silent cry?
Won't you turn? can't you hold
Me to your heart?
Are you afraid of what might follow
Once you start?
Would you rather not believe
I'm in such pain That all your sense and good advice
Must be in vain?
Would you rather tell your self
I'll be OK,
And all this adolescent angst
Will go away?

Ah! Would I also swim across
This lake alone!
But if you cannot swim with me,
I know I'll drown.
