angst cycle (iii)
[N] (xiv)

people have asked
in the past
when i’ve suffered similar hells

i may have asked myself

why don’t you ask her
but i did
she said no

they ask
why don’t you ask her again
but i did
she said no

they say
she wants to be persuaded
i say
do you know stalking is a crime
and anyway
what do you want me to beleive
that she’s lying
about a lack of interest
that’s she intentionally
allowing this intense pain
to continue

the pain is my problem
i solve it by moving on
that’s the only option
i’ve ever had

it would have been good
to have found someone
who wanted my love
but i’ve not

identified the pain
