I Would Care

I would care about
what you do
if you spoke with
rather than to
one must consider
were I the other
object, sister
hindrance, brother
please don't wake me
I'm having a good dream
please don't
life is a short thing
don't dare believe it's not
which would give it greater meaning
I simply cannot decide
between living it seriously
very much so
or not even slightly
please don't wake me
I'm having a good dream
please don't
do I make bad decisions?
or do I make my decisions bad?
could we be happy
if only we would forget
that we could be sad?
I would care about
what you do
if you spoke with
rather than to
