Please Don't Talk To Me

Please don't talk to me.
No, I don't want to go for coffee.
Yes, I'm doing fine.
No, I don't really care what your life is like.
Yes, I know I'm beautiful.
No, flattery won't get you anywhere.

Please don't talk to me.
No, I don't think we have anything in common.
Yes, if we did, we might have been friends in school, but we weren't.
No, that doesn't mean we should try and be friends now.

Please don't talk to me.
Yes, I'm fully aware you don't know anything about me.
No, I won't explain my entire life after high school to you.
Yes, I'm still socially awkward.
No, you won't understand me.

Please don't talk to me.
Yes, I'm aware it seems like I'm being short in our conversation.
No, it's just how I talk to everyone that texts me out of no where.
Yes, I already know I'm bad at keeping a topic going.
No, you aren't going to be an exception.

Please don't talk to me.
Yes, you've made this to be about you, you're the victim.
No, I won't apologize for being myself.
Yes, you are the one who messaged me first.
No, I won't feel bad that you're offended.

Please don't talk to me.
Yes, I already know where this is going, I knew the moment you said hello.
No, I'm pretty sure you're the one who's making this complicated.
Yes, you're the one who took it the wrong way.
No, it's not my fault you judged me.
Yes, you're a piece of trash.

Please don't talk to me.

I like the form, the yes- no dance and of course friends drifting apart, the so-called friends! So beautifully done and with specific details so much said without directly saying it!

How I feel everyday. I just want to be left alone to live my life but I get so many who try to ask me what I'm doing, how I'm feeling, or wanting something from me. Some I just ignore but others I try to be nice but they still don't get the point. Well done with this one my friend.

It's the age of technology where people whom you have ignored for a reason, insist on suddenly becoming, "friends."
Good one!

Gotta talk to a lotta trash like that these' days,
that don't know enough to leave you alone.
If you're new. Welcome on board.

And so say us who have such bothers from our past an eho try to reactivate a past, of indifferent recall we had gone away, come back like a bad memory that's more an indifferent ghost
