When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then watch everyone wonder how you did it!

I'm afraid to talk to you
you say cutting words
and they slice my heart
already battered and worn
from the past

you're angry
I'm sorry
it's time to move on
but you refuse to
while I still stand here, open

even half a year later
you haven't let go
you ignore me
you glare at me
and I don't know what to do

I'm trying to fix this
I've tried really hard
but you refuse to cooperate
'cause you can't move on
even if it's not a question of forgiveness

can't you just be trustworthy again
even though you never said you hated me?
you said you weren't angry
and that you were just annoyed
but your words don't sound like it

I embarrass you
I creep you out,
I think too much about you
and try to talk to you too much
that's just the way I am

can't you see that this hurts?
can't you see that it's breaking me inside?
the demolition is painful
but only you can fix it
yet you refuse

I don't understand
that aspect of you
I used to
but the others I do
for now, I'm left in the dark.

The author's comments:
This was inspired when a friend and a former friend had a conversation about me and the former friend said some of these things. I did not include everything that was said. I also hope that the reader will understand that people are complicated and it's actually okay not to understand everyone and it's okay when some people don't understand you.
