I was told today I should not have showed affection or love towards someone who doesn’t like me. I am having trouble grasping the logic behind that advice. The only thing I can think of is maybe they didn’t see it as a genuine effort or feeling on my behalf? Maybe it seems overly confident and rude to assume they want any type of attention positive or negative? I don’t really know because I have not been told specifically why being nice is wrong. I am of the opinion it is never wrong to be nice…I don’t see the downside to it. I think I am missing something. I think things have been said, important things, that everyone else knows but me. Words are like puzzle pieces, they fit someplace but sometimes it takes awhile to figure out where exactly they fit.
Respect me they say, and I do
Love me they ask, and I say yes
Please be honest, I’ll do my best
Do you trust me? Of course I do
Can I have a hug? An endless supply
Can we talk? I have a willing ear
I love you! I love you too!
Did you hear what I heard?
Can you believe what was said?
What they did? Who they are?
He left us alone….deserted us
She did what she had to do to survive
How dare he be so selfish
To just simply walk away
Then walk back in all sane and shit
To the vacant space long ago sublet
Left for too long, so sorry
There is no place here
Nothing left to come back too
Respect us, our wishes
As we tell you goodbye
And so I shall, but I’ll do it my way
If I see you, don’t expect a frown
Or a wayward sneer
It is in my character
To let love conquer fear
Some people may believe in lies
But my eyes they hold the truth
Just as your eyes hold yours
