"..though warm as summer it was fresh as spring." (Thomas Hardy) ("Far from the Madding crowd")

When you faced me with your vivid red hair
Breezing in the whistling wind
Your eyes curled up like a cat’s, like a lady’s;
I said I didn’t care.
When you sat with me in the red and green leaves,
Clasping thin long fingers,
Clasping the ring we had shared,
I turned to you,
And I told you I didn’t care.
Even as your golden green eyes
Sparkled not with love but tears;
Still I didn’t dry them, I didn’t stare into them;
And you really seemed to believe
That I didn’t care.
When you threatened to walk away from me
I slipped down onto my knees
Thick mud covering me in slime, in shame,
And pleaded with you to stay with me.
When you turned to me with a warped half-smile,
And told me you were tired of meeting either friend or foe,
I pretended you didn’t exist,
I said terrible things to make you think
I didn’t care.
Even when your wavy, blazing strands
Stood up on your head in anger, in anguish:
I was wretched;
Wretched, for I said I didn’t care.
When you stomped off after hissing angry words
That echoed in the callousness of the wind
With those cowgirl boots you used to wear;
Still, I shouted that I didn’t care.
I sank and I shivered
In the merciless mud
Drank in the redeeming spirit of the screaming air
And muttered over and over:
That I didn’t care.
