(Written in my English class after an interesting conversation, and the day after my birthday. Thanks to DJH for some suggested revisions)

If only I could have remembered,
and thought,
To say the words,
but alas I did not.

Did you not mean it,
When you said he meant nothing?

Did you not say to me,
that you could not say to me "I don't want to see you anymore"?

Did you not mean it,
when you said you would do anything to be with me again?

If you did,
then why are you doing what you are doing?

Yet, if you did not,
why did you say them at all?
