If only…

If only it was easy to stop caring

Just like turning off a switch.

Only, the switch is a lot more complicated:

Feelings are stronger and heavier than electricity.

If only it was easy to stop caring

That each time you say “I don’t care”,

You actually mean the words

And do not have to find it hard to swallow the pain.

If only it was easy to stop caring

As it was to start caring in the first place.

But when you know someone so deeply,

Not caring is never easy.

Their pain, their happiness, all of their feelings

Automatically become your own.

There’s no stopping it, there’s no denying it.

And that is the most dreadful,

Yet also the most wonderful,

Truth of life.
