Love You, Sweetie

Thinking of last Tuesday
Of the words we threw like darts,
You and I both knew the game
Makes for two bleeding hearts.
Me and you—hey, are you feeling
Blue? Because it’s tearing me apart.

So while I wait for you to call,
I’ll take long baths, binge watch TV,
Think of cute baby animals,
Of anything but you and me.
Me, myself and I—all alone
Instead of with my sweetie.

    Aww! I hope you kissed and made up:)

    Q. Is Bella that challenging to love?

    Truth be told, you could hum this poem and turn it into a song.

      Thank you, Arti, for commenting. After I posted the poem, I found I liked it less and less with the asides in parentheses, so I took them out and retitled the poem. That was the end of Bella. :)

      1. Arti Jain says:

        Aha!! Glad Bella escaped being infamous:)

      2. serendippitysays says:

        That made me laugh! Have a great day, Arti!
