I Love You

 

I love you
He said
I love you
She said
They meant different things
But they thought that they spoke
The same language.

Non-Communication

 

What did you say?
What?
What did you say?
When?
Just now?
Nothing.
Yes you did!
What?
Say something!
No, I didnít.
You did, I heard you!
How could you have?
Because you said something!
Well, it couldnít have been important.
Then why did you say it?
But I didnít!
You did!
Didnít!
Did!
Okay, I did.
What was it?
Nothing important.
Let me be the judge of that!
But I said it!
What was it you said?
Oh, Iíve had enough of this. Iím leaving!
He did.
She sat there,
And started to cry.
