    "Where do you like this picture?
    Over here?... Over there?"
    "What do you think of my outfit?"
    "What do you think of my hair?"
    "Do you like these pillows?
    The way they blend with the chair?"
    Why must I answer such questions,
    When in actuality, I don't care?

    It always looks the same to me
    It's to hard to compare
    Chances are I'll walk by it
    Won't even notice that it's there
    She doesn't really want my opinion
    I don't know why she wants me to share
    Plus, she's known me long enough to know
    Hey! I really don't care

    She's my lady, and I love her
    Of that fact, she's well aware
    And no, I don't mind cutting grass
    I don't mind maintenance and repair
    I will help her, as her husband
    Because I feel it's only fair
    But, whenever I seem uninterested
    It's probably because I just don't care

    This is a very, very interesting piece, mainly, the title got my attention.
    "I just don't care" ...but...
    if you were forced to eliminate one word, ...which would it be? ...

    1. I
    2. just
    3. don't
    4. care

    your choice

    I admire the honesty and truth
    in this piece...
    it represents the age old man/woman
    venus/mars interaction
    that we can't deny
    there are certain things
    that I truly believe that
    we are inclined to or not gravitate to
    and just as you don't care about
    the thread count in the sheets
    there are a lot of ladies that
    don't care about car parts...

    I actually love this piece
    because it tells the truth
    You can love a person
    but you may not always
    love all the extra's that come
    along with it...

    One thing that stands out
    in this poem though...
    is patience
    and love...is patient

    Nice work poet!
