Blind Is The World Around Me!

Why to be involved,
when we both know
Together is what we'd never be!
Why than, argue and fight over being apart
Isn't this enough that we're not enemies
Why make promises that we can't keep.
Loyalty, Empathy, Love and Sacrifice;
Are just hollow words
why than should we smolder
And play this game of words
Why should you wish for me
And I wish for you,
When we both know the world doesn't care.
Naked! you say, 'am I ' If so -
then; what?
Why cover myself
when blind is the world around me.

Ending lines carry the whole poem; very skillful language throughout.
