Romance of the Modern Day

I miss you,

I love you.

What day is it?

Where are you?



What are you doing today?

I’m hanging out with Robert...

Who’s Robert?

A friend, nobody to worry about.

But I do worry.


I Because you’ll leave and realize I’m not good enough.

No I love you, that won’t happen.

It has happened already because you want to hang out with him instead of me.

Hello? Are you there?

I am only showing how I feel and now you don’t respond..?

Hey.. are you still mad?

I can’t talk right now.

No don’t abandon me like this.


You’ve left me again...?

How could you!

I can’t do this anymore and take these games... I’m done I’m over.
