Bitter Lemon

Why would you test my patience,
Despite all it has gone through?
Why would you betray my trust,
And thus my last hope in humanity?

I see you and try to be okay;
Forgive and forget never went wrong.
But someone once asked a good question:
Do you forget who they were or likely still are?

I forbade judgment exit
From my withins. Judgment snuck its way out, anyway.
So, forgive my asking, but who are you, really?
And if I ever knew you, what on earth happened?
