Why didn’t you ever give me a chance?
Was I too weird/complicated/unfamiliar/not hot enough/avoidable/invisible/too different/too overweight/too uninteresting/too much?
Why when I gave you the chance, did you walk away/hang up the phone/avoid me in the hallway/act as if we were strangers/ didn’t push further/ refused to acknowledge my existence?
Was I not worthy of your love/attention/kindness/affection/friendship?
Was I not valuable enough/friendly enough/ interesting/beautiful/smart/ and as talented as you?
Why did you make me feel unappreciated/like a deformity/ like the song “she will be loved (someday)?
They say high school is either the best or worst moments of your life.
Mine were the worst.
I tried EVERYTHING to get your approval/your acceptance/acknowledgment
and for what?
Now I’m with someone who loves me/ SEES me/ caresses me/ kisses me/ holds my hand/ dances with me.
If you truly thought I was worth it then why didn’t you ask me to a dance/said hi in the hallways/told me i was smart/ told me i was beautiful/ loved me for who i am.
Even just a nod…but you didn’t.
You didn’t care/acknowledge/valued me.
And now I’m wondering why I wasted so many years wishing you would notice/care.
Why am I the one that says hi/adds you/ acknowledged you/cared even though I shouldn’t.
I’m not asking for you to love me. I am asking you to at least acknowledge and not deprecate how I felt and dismissed it.
Don’t act like were strangers…because right now, I am telling you I will never say hi to you, until you realize that you missed a great friendship, and a great person in me.
