persona non grata

you’re doing it again
ignoring me because you’re afraid
refusing to look me in the eye
the silence is not deafening
it’s just crushing
like putting something in a jar
and creating a vacuum
and sucking all the air out
you can’t hear in a vaccum
you’re doing it again
don’t try to pretend to protect me
ignoring me is not being kind
‘i don’t want to lead you on’ is not an excuse
don’t think i’m the one who needs protection
wanting to kiss me is not a reason to be rude
