Please Don't

Don't ask me how I'm doing,
When you know that I'll just lie.
Don't ask me how I'm doing,
When all I'll say is 'fine'.

Don't pretend you care,
When we both know the truth.
Don't pretend you care,
About anyone but you.

Don't say you're sorry,
You're just lying to yourself.
Don't say you're sorry,
It frankly will not help.

Don't tell me it's alright,
I know it cannot be.
Don't tell me it's alright,
Just be honest with me.

I know I ask a lot,
But it's nothing you can't do.
I know I ask a lot,
But I have faith in you.

So don't ask me how I'm doing,
And don't pretend you care,
Don't play with my heart,
It truly is unfair.

Don't say you're sorry,
And tell me it's alright,
You can't make it better,
You can't make it right.

Really all I ask,
Is one simple thing.
All I want you to do,
Is stop lying to me.


Random poetry mood. I like how it turned out.
