"Have you ever been hurt and the place tries to heal a bit, and you just pull the scar off of it over and over again." - Rosa Parks

I’ve watched the sun rise, and watched the sun set,
I’ve known all your lies and also one truth,
For I’ve felt them all, but never regret,
It’s not rocket science, nor takes a sleuth.

Configuring your attitude toward me,
After all that you’ve done and what’s happened,
It makes me cry and I’m growing angry,
To know your issue and why you’re saddened.

Please don’t continue to play this with me,
It’s making all my love for you whither,
Answer me, I want to help don’t you see?
Let me fix this and stop acting bitter.
If you truly do love me, let me know,
And if you don’t please gently let me go.

This poem is dedicated to my best friend who's mom died in April, 2011. I just wanted to help him but he never showed any interest in being friends with me ever again. We still don't talk and he has no idea how much poetry I wrote about him.
