Do You Even Care? - Poem by Elizabeth Walker

Feels like termites eating away at my life
Everyday I’m drifting further away
Would you even care if we said goodbye?
Love said so often no meaning behind the words
It may be cliché but it’s not absurd
I want to fly far away from this place
I want nobody yet I need a strong embrace
We’ve both taken away something that means the world
Our lives are chaos and like stormy winds that swirl
I’m ready to move on, you’re ready to stand still
If that’s how you’re gonna be it won’t work out
Never can, never will
Love isn’t misery, love isn’t keeping me oppressed
I’m captive in my own home I’m a slave never to roam
Does this make you happy is this how you want things to be?
