You smile with your lips
But it doesn’t reach your eyes
Barely even there
It’s like your soul
Has left your body
And now all that is left
Is a the flesh
You try so hard to be human
But there is no good inside you
Everything you do
Brings about destruction
Your narcissistic brain
Promises you that you are the victim
That you are trying so hard to be good
You have become such a great gaslighter
That you have managed to gaslight yourself
Into believing that you care
About anyone other than
As those of you that read my last post know, I recently finished watching the final episode of the fourth season of You. You is one of my absolute favourite shows although I don’t know how to feel about this season. Especially the last half of it. I think I’m still processing some of it. And that’s where this poem “All You Care About Is You” spawned from.
So as you have guessed if you’ve ever seen You, this poem is about Joe Goldberg or at least him at the end of season 4. I think writing is the best way to process this show, lol. I still don’t know if I love or hate it.
Did you enjoy “All You Care About Is You?” Do you watch You and if so what did you think of the latter half of season 4? Let me know in the comments below because I would really love to hear your thoughts! Or just simply stop by and say hi!

I guess I belong to the clueless crowd. I only watch Family Guy lol. I love the poem! Reminded me of somebody that I used to know, it’s that good! I’m here for more👍🏼
Lol, I watch Family Guy all the time too. It’s awesome! Aw thank you 😊
Wow you must have some experience with this!
Thanks so much.
I always like when your poetry is a bit dark. 🙂
Thank you so much 🙂
haven’t watched, but your poetry has piqued my interest. a great poem, Pooja🤍
Thank you so much 😊
the poem is ominous, it creates dramatism of doom and gloom.
victimization is a good translation, it leads to condemnation.
gaslighting is also a bit frightening.
overall I love the call.
Thank you so much. Yes, gaslighting frightens me too.
Oooh, that’s a very dark poem! I like how the last line is the name of the show. I haven’t watched ‘You’ but I’m a bit intrigued now…
Thank you and I absolutely love it so I would definitely recommend it. It’s pretty dark though so just warning you.
You’re welcome, Pooja, and yeah, okay, thanks… I’ll be sure not to watch it alone! 😱
BTW, I have noticed my “likes” of your posts don’t show up when I read your posts on my desktop, so I went back and re-did them! Not sure why that would be… 🧐
Oh that’s so weird. Were you using the app before because that glitches sometimes 🤔
I have never seen the show, but your poem is dark, and I know someone whose just like that. How ironic?
Thanks so much and very ironic. That person does not sound very nice.
I haven’t watched “You” although I know it is a popular show. Normal people are at risk of falling into the pitfall of a narcissist’s love bomb, after which the narcissist would go back to himself or herself. And the normal people would feel lonely and dejected.
The main character of You is a total narcissist and the show is actually from his POV which I love because it shows you how narcissists justify their behaviour to themselves and others. And how easy it is to be fooled by them. He constantly love bombs his partners after doing horrible things.
The poem is 🔥
You are so good with such stuff.
I like how you beautifully penned down the show 😊
I haven’t seen the show, but the title gives some idea.
Kudos PG 🤜🏻
Thank you so much 😊
Your SWS is more lengthier than your reply 😛
Jk PG, please take care 🌼
Lol sorry I’m sick and don’t have the energy to reply 😅
You are not supposed to say sorry 🤦🏻♂️
I was just joking around 😛
And you please take care of your health dear PG.
Thanks, I’m trying but the universe has other plans lol.
You need a “pooja” 😛 for yourself
For real 😅
I like this one. It may not be personal but it feels like it. I can really feel it and I enjoy it, sincerely.
You always have the best poetry. A bunch of dark poetry in this theme complied in a book or on a movie or play would be sooo fascinating.👀😉👀
Thank you so much. I tend to really connect with fictional characters so that may be why it sounds person. I feel like it kind of is personal lol.
Working on a book already! 😊
I completely understand what you mean. I have very intense personality and I write tensely and my characters are fleshed out enough for me to write about them and learn more so it’s easier to write them and connect.☺️
And ooo I can’t wait.
I know a lot of people like that.
Yes, unfortunately there are many people like that out there.
Most of us actually care about ourselves before we can even think about other people.
I haven’t watched the series but I have seen it being talked about by many people on social media though.
Yes, that’s true. The show is quite good which is why I think it’s quite popular.
I swore I heard Joe’s voice narrating this poem! You are really deep into the series 😂
Lol I think it was so fresh in my mind when I wrote this 😅
slept on arrival
gone so much denial
the nile smile
nine inch gap
none of the least
Really interesting poem.
ty i told mussa about you . he is a kenyan in slc usa whom works for boa.
Oh that’s great.
I haven’t watched You either but I’m gonna check it out soon. 🙂
You should, it’s a great show.
This poem screams Joe Goldberg!! The part 2 of You completely blew my mind. Joe has made himself to believe that all his psychopathic killings are actually based off good interests and that’s just crazy. I think this is the best season so far. I almost lost my mind after watching the final episode. Although, i think we should have seen it coming because what is a season of You without the ‘Joe class cage?’
Thank you! Yes, I absolutely know what you mean. I really enjoyed this season and the second half blew my mind. True, where there’s a Joe there’s a cage lol.
I came upon You yesterday when I was looking for something new to watch. I watched the first episode and was hooked. At one point I wondered if this was the show you mentioned you liked but didn’t make the association when I picked it. Subliminally I guess I did. Now I look forward to watching it and can see how your poem above will play out.
I’m rewatching You and just watched the first episode. I have forgotten a bit of the older seasons which is why I decided to rewatch it. Let me know how you like it as you watch more episodes. I’m always curious to hear other peoples thoughts on shows I like.
Well written ❤️🔥
Thank you so much 😊
Beautiful poem pooja. I finished watching S4 of You and totally relate with the poem; lines ‘You try so hard to be human But there is no good inside you’ perfectly describes joe goldberg. I felt really bad for his last victims 😔.
Thank you so much. Yeah, I felt so bad for Nadia and Edward. They deserved better.
I watched the first few episodes thinking right up my alley. Then I stopped because it turned creepy. Which doesn’t interest me. But your poem captures it. Good job. Cool idea.
Yeah it gets creepier as you watch more. Definitely not for everyone. Thanks so much.
Of course. And the issue is?? 🤣😎🙃
No issue at all here 😂
This hit hard…nice read
Thank you so much.
Yeah, beware of those smiles that never reach the eyes.
Yes, always be careful around people like that.
I think everyone has known someone like in your poem. I don’t watch You, but it’s nice it inspired your poem
Yes, true we all know someone like that. Thanks.
Nice poem Pooja!
Thank you so much!
You really captured the characteristics of a narcissist in this poem. I’ve never seen the show but I know someone who was at one time in a relationship with a narcissist. She definitely learned what to look for now when dating. Good poem though.
Thank you so much. Yes, the main character is quite a narcissist which is what inspired this. I’m sorry she went through that but glad she’s careful now.
Yes me too. What I can’t understand though about her is that she still feels the need to have a man in her life. She’s on a dating site where I know a lot of creeps hang out. I worry about her finding the wrong guy sometime and losing her life.
Yeah, dating sites have so many creepy people on them. They can be quite dangerous and it’s easier to hide your true personality online so some awful people take advantage of that.
A poem that makes us think, as reading your poem many people came into my mind that fit which kind of makes me feel sad that they are members of my own family.
Did you ever wonder why many people today only care about themselves, what has happened to families?
Thanks so much. It’s true, there is less of a bond in families now. Very sad.
Is this true in other countries than the USA?
Yes, maybe not to the same extent but I see it in Kenya too.
It is a shame this is happening in Kenya as well, so I am sure this is happening all over the world
Yes, it’s happening in many places for sure.
It is sad how our society is changing
