Silent Question

I trusted
I would have done anything
if only you had asked
for a time
life was better
I had hope
now I sit here
in confusion
You ignored me
playing with my emotions
as if I were a piano
I did not see it then
I was blind
to this part of you
I want to know
why-and how
you can be so cruel
don't you know
I cried
until I wanted to scream
but I knew you would not listen
I did nothing to deserve
the way you treated me
I did care about you
we were close
I don't understand
why you broke me
I can't ask
I doubt I will ever accept
though I can't change
how you feel
my mind screams in silence
the question that will never
reach you
