About the Poem

I wrote this poem while I experienced the pain of falling in love with a best friend who didn't love me the same way. Our friendship has suffered because of this, and I felt this poem expressed the emotions of my soul.

Do You Even Care?

I just don't know how to feel,
If I should just give up,
Store away all emotion
And chalk it up as never meant to be.

I put away what I feel
And try to forget you.
But then you smile at me,
Or brush against me,
And I fall in love all over again.

Then you'll forget me
For awhile, pretend I'm not there.
I cry and wonder,
Do you even care at all?

I love ur poem! I hate boys who make a gurl think they like them and really don't. Thats why it's best to let a boy talk to you first and make him wait b4 yall start dating, 2 see do he really like you if he wait.
Thanx 4 giving me the oppurtunity to read this poem. I LOVE IT. It put how i am feeling on paper. Recently my best friend who i wished was my lover has recently got a girlfriend. Im finding it hard to cope as i wanted him and now his not mine and has no time to spend with me as his always with his gf. Thanx again
i can relate to this poem my b/f of 2 years broke up with because he said he was not inlove anymore and we worked together so i saw him everyday and he would always smile at me or brush against me then he would ignore me like i was not even there.
your poems are really deep which is really cool alot of people don't want to show there true emotions
