Tell Me That You Love Me

Tell me that you love me, she said
How would you feel if I died this very moment?, she asked
Would you rather watch me live a long sad life
Or a short happy one?

I love you, I said
I love her so much it hurts, I thought
Too bad she’ll never know what it means
I’ll rather watch her live a long miserable life
I decided and then I…..

    Uh Schmukz! This right here’s an impeccable portrayal of the thin line that exists between cuteness and ‘creepy-ness’! 😈 I mean, you’d much rather she lived a long and miserable life than a short and sweet one?! 😨 Where’s the ‘love’ in that TM 🙉…pray, tell! 😂

    The Narrator it would seem is looking out for himself alone as lotsa folks who are taken by some other folks are naturally wont to do. I’ve since learnt that a few are totally capable of sacrifice and selflessness…allowing for their Beloved to have their ways; even to the detriment of they themselves! Its the way of the world and the closest love to the agape which is the ‘Godly’ kinda love and unconditional too; here on Earth, is gotta be that between a mother and her kids! She makes no demands of her kids but loves them anyway, even when they fail woefully to return her love! Its just what it is! 😄

    Kudos TM, this grabs!

    How’ve you been? The pages of this blog have missed your presence and clever remarks.

    Hehe. I’m glad it grabs. You really unearthed one here o.

    Hmmm. Things are not always what they seem but sometimes they are 😈

    Heylo TM! Hehehe.

    I’ve been keeping well. You?

    I also missed being here. Forgive my looong absence, couldn’t be helped.

    Will come by as often as I can manage and take your smashing posts in small doses. 😈😆

    And as regards things not appearing as they seem, I really couldn’t agree! For the most part, things appear as smokes and mirrors! Now you see ’em, and now you plain don’t! 😂

    Thanks TM for the ‘Hero’s Welcome’ 😇❤; and Yemo huh??? 🙊🙈 Uh….Smokes! 😈 😆

    I’ve been good too as well. I’m looking forward to your other comments.

    😄, yup yup. That’s the what popped in my head when I saw your comment and I thought I’d try it out. Eventually decided against adding a ‘tell me if this sits well with you line’ 😆.

  9. Yemie · August 15, 2016

    Hehehe! It does sit better than well with me TM, I scored and raked in some good laughs on that one and it easily brought on some long gone memories from back in the days! 😎 So ‘Yemo’ it is indeed! 😂

I'm curious, what did you think? Talk to me; leave a comment
