at the other end

i have to be alone
she said
he turned to go
he didn’t though
he only stared ahead
don’t hesitate to call
he said
if you should be in need
of someone to squash spiders
or stomp on centipedes
don’t stop your hand
if you should reach
to phone to find a friend
i’ll be always waiting
at the other end

he believes
are just for wimps
and girly men

Daily prompt – apology
here’s the original sticky notes

how real is your love

how real is your love
she asked
would you walk across a desert
with the hot sun beating down
would you take up economics
would you dress up like a clown
if all or any of this
meant we
could be
a team

how real is your love
he replied
would you not ask silly questions
with my cool heart turning mean
would you take up cleaning & cooking
would you dress up like a queen
if all and I mean all of this
meant we
could be
a team

no she said
i will not  be your slave
no he said
i will not be your knave
so they broke up
