the things i couldn’t tell you – a poem of sorts
- You were wrong.
You were right.
- It isn’t fine.
I wasn’t really washing my hair.
I wish I was washing my hair right now.
I’m not interested.
- I love you.
I really dislike you.
I am not actually in a rush; I just don’t want to talk to you.
- Yes, you are annoying.
No, those people don’t like you.
- You make me feel uncomfortable.
You made them feel uncomfortable.
You just are useless at this social interaction thing.
- Your essay sucks.
Your essay is better than mine.
Your essay is worse than mine but we got the same mark.
- I don’t really find you attractive anymore.
I never really found you attractive.
You are attractive but your personality stinks.
- I was actually trying really hard to look cool.
I tried really hard to fail at cool.
I was too tired to try.
- Actually, I would rather stay in with a good book than come and hang out with you.
But mostly, I can never tell you…
