Ignorance Isn’t Quite A Bliss

Saturday, November 16, 2013

Sure, I don’t care.

But how far can I go with this silence? It’s so loud it makes me deaf. How long can I stand this invisibility you make me feel? It’s so convincing it makes me want to really leave. How long can I pretend I don’t care about what you’re doing to me? It’s so bad it makes me want to cringe.

No, I am definitely not giving in. I know this game; I know how it works. You suddenly act as if I don’t exist to try to get my attention? Sorry, I won’t give you what you thought I would. I’ve changed, and I’m glad I did.

No matter how difficult it is for me to equate the cold shoulder you’re giving me now, I’m sure I’ll make it through. So even though that ignorance isn’t quite a bliss, I’ll let you have it all missed.
