can’t fool me…

he kept lookin’ at his phone…waitin’ on some kinda response…made calls…sent out messages…old girlfriends…ex-wives…guys he’d known along the way…just wantin’ to talk to somebody…acknowledge his existence…
it was like fishin’…you cast out a hundred times and maybe two or three bite…but there’s always one that puts up a fight…always one…

she got back to him…this woman he’d loved years ago…thought he loved her…the bed does strange things to people…it can manipulate…it can trick ya’ into thinking things that don’t exist…like love…like love…

you used to get so jealous…,she said to him…used to question me up and down every night if I didn’t call you back…,she laughed…,are you still that way…jealous…

I wanted to talk to ya’ ’bout somethin’…, he told her…,wanted to talk to anybody…just needin’ to talk I guess…,took a drag on a smoke…sipped some whiskey…,didya’ think I was crazy…, he asked…,didya’ think I’d lost it…

let’s just say you were on your way…,she said plainly…no inflection in her voice…just plain…,you were headin’ down a road I didn’t wanna travel on…you were turnin’ mean…turnin’ mean…still drinkin’ whiskey…

nope…not a drop…,he took another swig…she laughed…

can’t fool me…can’t fool me…

The writing is based on my surroundings and what I've been surrounded by. This language is coarse and politically incorrect; which I make no apologies for. These characters are not nice and to use any other dialogue would be disingenuine. That being said, I choose to roll the dice. dm seay
