Kidding?

Rage rippled through my veins
when you admitted
hating my dearest friend.

My wide eyes met yours
and you smiled.
“I was just kidding, honestly!”
Your reassurances held
more conviction than
the words of an honest man.

Yet, we both knew
that ‘kidding’ was not
what you had just done.

Why insist on staring me down
with that awful sweet smile?
Why persist on serving me
when you don’t want my company?

Because, we both know
that ‘kidding’ was not
what you had just done.

You try to make amends to your faults
through jokes and laughs.
I sulk.

No one can tell when you’re serious
and when you’re not.
I’m transparent.

But still, we both know
that ‘kidding’ was not
what you had just done.

      I suppose we all have those moments when we say something we shouldn’t have and try to cover it up. A teenage me wrote this, and she was pretty cut up about the whole episode… LOL, I am glad you liked and could relate! 🙂

    I could relate to this. I liked the use of repetition.

    Thank you for visiting my blog this morning.
