Uh Huh

Because last night I wrote something serious I challenged myself to write something funny tonight. I’m not sure I met that goal but I had fun writing it. And, depending on your sense of humor and baggage, you may or may not not find some humor in this. It does seem to get a bit dark. But it didn’t start out that way. Really.

I’m not complaining,
I’m just saying.
    Uh huh.
    Yeah, right.


It’s not you that’s the problem,
it’s me.
    Uh huh.
    Yeah, right.

Don’t you believe me?
    No answer.
    Just a thought bubble:
         Omg, How dumb do you think I am?
         Are you listening to yourself?
         Would you believe your own lie?
    I’m so sorry, I meant to say line.


I would never lie to you
Or hurt you on purpose.
    Uh huh.
    Yeah right.
    Thought bubble:
          Would you notice if you hurt me “by accident?”

Trust me
I care
    Uh huh
    Yeah right.

    Thought bubble, oops maybe out loud:
       I used to believe those words
       I used to believe a lot of things
       I used to want to believe everything I heard
       and that everyone can change.
    That may be true, but only if they want to.
    Now I realize how absurd
    believing empty words can be.
    for real,
    actions say more than those trite words and phrases
       that roll off some people’s tongues
       so smoothly,
       sometimes even with a hint of a tear,
       rarely with a hint of meaning.

    Uh huh,
    Yeah right.
    I believe you
    All is forgiven.

    Do you believe me?
