So then he said

in a way

“Do you love, him?”

“Do you want him instead of me?”

And I translated

The glares to mean

I can’t win- he is your ideal man- I know it already….

So I said

” No, I love you…”

Which was true

If  he woke up in cold sweats

But I liked his fear

So I added

” Since Its hard for you to compete

and you seem to be worried about the shit

mad it might be that cat then

I don’t care for diamonds,

I like sapphires.”

Silence fell over the entire earth.

He hasn’t complained

about my incessant flirting in weeks.

Surprise, surprise.
