Apathy, she screams

Give her apathy.


Apathy over fear

Apathy over tears

Don’t make her feel

For nothing is real

It all fades away

Every moment, every day


“Give me apathy”, she begs

She can’t move her legs

Out of this horrid place

This life is just a race

A race to the unknown

And she’s stuck here alone

At the starting line

But that’s just fine


Because she doesn’t want to run

She doesn’t want any fun

No laughter, no anger

She’d rather you hang her

Than be forced to feel it all

The flight and the falls

The deep, infectious love

And the lack thereof


Because it’s all a trap

To make her into a goddamn sap

Who feels all those feelings

And is always left reeling

But she won’t be tricked

No, she’s not that sick

She’ll keep it all inside

Locked up in that pretty little cage she calls Pride


Apathy, she screams

All she wants is apathy.

    Thanks for sharing - An awesome poem pulsating with poetic energy and the very antithesis of the subject APATHY ! I have acquaintances who are APATHETIC and you have described them perfectly. A good descriptive poem must ring true ! Yours BRIAN
