(Why Did You Care?) Once I Didn’t

March 8, 2013

I didn’t watch you sleep
that night.
And I let those boys come in
and sweep you away
In their perfect fucking arms.

I didn’t watch as they fucked you
Over and over again.

You were hard enough to believe
without those cheap tears
and in your cheap sun dress
for all those fucking years.

Why did you care once I didn’t?
