Things That Bug Me About You

My goodness, how rude can one get?
I haven’t even finished speaking yet.
Your uncaring interruption,
has ruined my thought construction.
Now I have to put my thoughts on the shelf.
Couldn’t you see I was talking to myself ?!

And when I ask you to look for my keys,
Don’t make me beg on my knees.
I hate it when you laugh to beat the band,
Just because you see them in my hand!

And last week when I asked you to find my phone,
Your unkind remark cut me to the bone.
You said “you are losing your mind I fear.,
What’s that thing on your ear?”

It just isn’t nice, no matter how true it rings,
Accusing me of always losing things!
I just hate that quirk about you!!
Hey,.. you seen my other shoe?

    Yin and yang no longer sang and the world, it just stopped spinning. I guess that's what we get with our smirking and our grinning. Nobody get's to live alone forever and a day. There always seems to come the day when someone's in our way. Enjoyed your wonderful wit on this one Robert. Peace.

    Ha ha, Robert, we think alike about the stage we are going through. Sadly it just gets worse but I ain't giving up. I will never "go quietly into the night", people will sit up and take notice when I'm making my exit! Love, Elizabeth
