Why Do You Ignore Me?

You read my messages,
But you don't reply back.
What's up with that?

I call you,
But you're never home.

Are you trying to say something here?
Are you trying to say were through?

I need to know.

I don't like being treated this way.
I feel like I'm being pushed away.

I can find someone new.
Of course I wouldn't want to.

I feel like you don't want me anymore.
Or that you've simply found someone who's more.

I don't know.
I can't say.
I'm not accusing you in anyway.

I just hate feeling like I'm being pushed away.
I hate being dangled on a string this way.

I wouldn't do it to you,
So why do you do it to me?

Are you trying to cause me more pain?

All I need you to say is 'Goodbye'
And I'll be on my way.

I wont stick around
Where I'm not wanted in any way.

I don't like being bothersome.

So say that one word,
And away I go.
You'll never hear from me again.

Please tell me why you ignore me so.
