Answer: vanity

If I told you why
I feel dead inside, 
you may show sympathy. 
I may just let it be. 

Don't want to bore you
with the tenuous. 
I'll think you're being
disingenuous. 

You'd explain you care, 
but I wouldn't be fair. 
I'd draw it out. 
You'd match my pout. 
All the while self-aware. 

It's myself I've fettered. 
to make  feel better. 
With selfish spite 

Why would you care
if I'm OK? 
Nothing matters
anyway. 

Why do I care
if you think I'm OK?
