I Can'T Live This Way - Poem by Ruth warren

I don't have the heart, to tell you goodbye,
though I live in fear, each day of my life.

I can't continue this way, I'd much rather die,
yet I don't have the courage, to commit suicide.

You ignore the tears, that each night I cry,
for you really don't care, or even ask why.

Is my sorrow invisible, or only a surprise,
when all I do is give, yet you never compromise?

I've heard it all before, your' words of deciept and lies.

Don't pretend that you care, you've never taken the time,
to try and understand, the feelings that I hide.

Just leave me alone, and I will be just fine,
I don't need your' pity, for I've always been fine,
