23 (who?)
Why do you act like you care?
You don't even know me.
You always claim to be there,
But you never try to show me.

Why do you act like you try,
When you don't move at all?
And then you ask yourself why,
I never want to call.

Why do you put up a front,
And act like we're your life?
You want to look good, but please,
At least remove the knife.

Why do you act so calm,
When I know you're in a panic?
To see your little girl like this---
Well, it surely must make you frantic.

Why do you even bother?
You know it's always the same...
You make plans for amends, but in the end,
You end up forgetting your turn in the game.

Why do you even come back?
All of us have already moved on.
You're just too stuck in the past
To realize that I am long gone.

Why do you act like you care?
We know what goes on through your head.
So stop pretending, we might look alive,
But to each other we're both just as dead.
A tribute for all of those who are sick and tired of people sucking up to you and acting like they give a damn, when you know they really don't.

Oh, thank you!
I try to make my work really show how I feel,
So it doesn't seem like just words on paper.
Be sure to check out my other poems, and if you can I recommend you looking at my best poem 'Bully'.
There should be the link in my signature.
You still got it :iconsobeautifulplz:

I hate when people act like they actually give a damn about you almost as much as when people pretend they actually understand what you're going through. Nice poem :)
