Heartbreak and Lies

They both have some baggage.

… so that was the end for them?

Yeah, I mean
That’s how she found out
He’d been lying the whole time
So — why do men tell lies?

I don’t know
Some guys are just jerks, I guess
Although
Women have been known to tell
A lie or two, as well
When they feel like it

Has a woman ever lied to you?

Yes

Did she break your heart?

Not completely –
Has a guy ever lied to you and
Broke your heart?

Yes –
And worse

I’m sorry –
Tell you what
Don’t lie to me
And I won’t lie to you
Deal?

Deal
But seriously,
Did she break your heart?

She did – but it’s nothing…
Nothing…
You couldn’t put back together

couple, sitting

i’m not all boys, so i am not
the one who must have hurt you…

i’m not all boys, so i am not
the one who must have hurt you –
i’m honest, and i’m loyal, and
i would not just desert you

if you could see you through my eyes
i know that you would feel
that what i’m saying is the truth
and all of this is real

so try me out, we’ll take our time –
i know that you’ve been burned –
and that, for you to trust me is
a thing that must
be earned

Human Sampling #7

A couple fighting at a library

So, what are you reading?
She said

I don’t know. I think I might have the book upside down.
He answered

Are you going to stay angry with me?
She asked

Are you going to stay angry at me?
He asked in return

No
She said

No, either
He said

Good
She said,
Because this book on water heater parts
Really isn’t doing it for me

Human Sampling #3

A snippet between a man and a woman who are good friends.

Why is it that women think

If they’ll just give sex

They’ll get love?

She wondered, thinking out loud

For the same reason that men think

If they’ll just give love

They’ll get sex

He answered
