I did not mean to

I did not mean to (does what it says on the tin)

I did not mean to make you think that

I did not mean to block you out

I did not mean to kill the mood

I did not mean to ignore all requests

I did not mean to be full of spite

If only you had texted back and not taken it that way.

I hate being this way

But I become like this when upset

Wallowing in self-pity

I never meant to be horrible

I just had a bad day

If only you had texted back and not taken it that way.

I never learn

You just doing that made it worse

We were supposed to be best friends

I don't feel I can talk to you

I feel like there is a guard

If only you had texted back and not taken it that way.

You are not listening

I can tell

Avoiding my gaze

although I am avoiding yours

Can't we just make up

Put everything right

If only you had texted back and not taken it that way

I have never been good at friends

Why would you be different

Never more than two years

I cannot stay attached

I am not that social

If only you had texted back and not taken it that way

I can deal with adults

Because they forget you in a flash

But young people remember every wrong

never all the right

Give me a while, or talk to me, then can we make up?

If only you had texted back and not taken it that way

I felt really bad

when you left me in the dark

Then when someone said about it

I broke down

I could not stop, can we please

The End
