I Don'T Care

Poem By Emily Angel

You think you hold
the world in your hands.
But all you are is
A big nothing.

Your critical eyes
miss nothing except
All the flaws you
Yourself have.

You circle me like
a vulture, pointing out
Each and every fault
Of mine and you
Call me a tragedy.

I have flaws, I accept
But I don't need you
To show me them
Every second in a day.

You call me a tragedy
And so am I.

The world could use
quite a few tragedies
To be interesting.

You try to drown me
In my own tears.
But sorry, not this time.

You roar like a lion
And I'm not moved
'Cause I know you're
Weaker than a cat.

Each time I ascend a step
You push me two lower.
But it won't work anymore.

You go on critizing me
But this I want you to know.

Just three words.
'I Don't Care! '

You are welcome to bring
The sky down upon me
And I still won't care.

Comments about I Don'T Care

You are welcome to bring The sky down upon me And I still won't care. Marvelous! Your biography portrays you as a soft girl, but here you have shown how strong you are. This is a strong expression of how you feel about your tormentor, you have said it in no uncertain terms. I also appreciate the beautiful and forthright comments of Elizabeth Grace and Stefanie Fontker. They have spoken my mind out.
Ah! Now, this is what I have been searching for. Thank you for giving words to what I needed. :)
The tragic is beautiful, and flaws are only life's scars, you carry them well. Beautiful poem.

A beautiful dream you are,
Yet I know not what to do.

Look into your hearts, O men,
And count the good things
You ever thought for your fellow beings.

How could this be?
What a sweet sensation can
All of this be?

Let Me Love You

You keep my light burning bright
Even in my darkest night.

You have me safe in your arms,

Regret

I'm drenched by the rain,
Yet I'm not cold.
For I'm freezing inside
Of my heart.
