I have tried to say
This in oh so many ways
But it won’t sound right

I don’t respond now
I neglect to invite you
I hoped you get it

That this cannot work
I won’t lie and pick a fight
Now it’s just over

I love the structure of this poem.. it's crazy because so many can relate to this case scenario and the wording of it all was just perfect for how these situations usually feel. Job well done my friend
