Passive Aggressive

"denoting or pertaining to a personality type or behavior marked by the expression of negative emotions in passive, indirect ways, as through manipulation or noncooperation"

I can't explain
why
I have been treating you so unkind
nothing ever comes to mind
when I hear
your name, it pricks my ears
and I feel a rising urge inside
to stamp on your pride
for all you haven't done
and nothing I have ever tried
to justify
will be accepted
I forget to whom the social rules apply
and so I abide
by the laws of poetry
because there are none
and nothing I can say
will ever be understood
or questioned
or perfect
imperfect
expected
or good enough for you

The End
