You Don't Care

You Don't Care

A Poem by Jessica Lima

Ana works multiple jobs

To make ends meet.

But there's a sacrifice

To escape her defeat.


She sells her body

Knowing life ain't fair.

But when she tries to explain...

Let me guess, YOU DON'T CARE.


***


Mark is a man in love,

And that, everyone can see.

But Lana cheats on him.

Will you tell him? Not me!


A better match for him,

Is this girl named Blair.

But helping a stranger?

God forbid! YOU DON'T CARE.


***


You are this great person,

Amazing to say the least.

But the human that you are,

Finds sin hard to resist.


We could look the other way,

But that wouldn't be fair

To the people you ignored,

Just because YOU DIDN'T CARE.

I think you have an "Ana" / "Anna" name fetish, like me. Lol...
Your poor Ana. I love this Jess.
"Real" people, raw emotion...
What do you think about the name "Penelope"?
I'm working on a mystery series.
Just throwing "Penelope" out there. hehe

Wow! This definitely had a bit of a surprise flow! I'd add a couple of more example characters, just because I find the story is simply a somewhat likeable a*hole getting a scolding, and that's a bit undermined by the fact that there are only two examples. Perhaps the "I" of the poem also has a story..... Or perhaps the a*hole's likeableness is only the mask put on for the "I". This has great potential, play with it a bit more to really amp up the absurdity! Great start!

Woah! An engaging, poem of betrayal and love! :)
Sometimes we need to find peoples true colors, because, they're not always who they claim to be...
Again, the rhymes were well made, and the poem overall, was superb!
Keep it up Jessica!
