What Did I Ever Do To You ?

That's Not Nice

Here we are in the same room together but we are not on the same page

You spread the word but it is not what I had expected

We use to get along

I thought we were inseperable

I would see you every day

Many times I jumped for joy at all your hard work

I tell you over and over can't do it as well as you

I give you credit where credit is do

I gave you a name a long time ago when we first met

Do you remember or have you forgotten everything

I couldn't wait till we were alone

The two of us

You are special

I tell you all the time no one does it like you

You are quiet most of the time

When you want to be you can be a noisey son of a bee

I never seemed to mind

My cat even gives you company during the day so you won't be alone

I think sometimes you like her better than me

I see you two acting as if you are the only ones in the room

The thought never crossed my mind of being apart for long

Other people are always talking

I don't listen

They say you had some great times but now you have to part ways

Times are different now

With the world so faced paced who can keep up

Time to move on

No sense in reliving all the old memories

I often pull out the pictures that bring us together

I still say they were great

We were a team

You never let me down

I counted on you often and you came through in the clutch

You never hesistated and I was never so proud

I would tell everyone if it wasn't for you I would of never come this far

You fill my life with excitement

The story of my life

You have given me more than I have ever hoped for

I certainly don't have your skill or talent

I am asking you one more time

I don't know when we ever got are wires crossed

But this is no way to live

You turned my plain days into bold and new

I don't want to leave you

I think all the other people in my life are wrong

My family and friends have the wrong idea

You got all confused and now rarely do things right

It is time to set the record straight

We all go a little haywire and go crooked sometime in our life

Now is not the time

You have to pull it together

You don't have to act up any more

My cat doesn't even come by like she use to

She has found another friend

I like to think we will be friends forever

Now could you please print out a good copy

Not one blank with a few blurred lilnes

There is simply no reason

All your cartridges are full and and in the past you would work just fine

Now you give me all kinds of noise and a few lines and no magic

You are only a year old and what has gotten into you

I am not going to spend more money on another printer

Print and print good will you

OHMYGOSH! What a surprise ending! hahahaha! I was getting so sad and concerned for you, being led to think it was a person being addressed who was very important to you & was bugging out on you! Whew!! What a relief! Dream On - wow.

Very cleverly constructed!

Good one. I couldn't understand what you were getting at but the ending was delightful. I think I have the twin to your printer cause mine has a mind of its own. lol

Joy56 Very interesting thought I will have to dig deeper.Printer,printer will you work with me or are use still clowning around.(lol)As always friends are so special to me.They see the me that is hidden or the me that comes out in writing of a story or a poem.The thing I love the most is they are by my side through thick and thin.Now that says everything.Have a beautiful night.

Joy56 You have come to the right place.I get ideas all the time.Why not do one on a love between a cat and a dog even though they are enemies from the start.What our children teach us about ourselves.Being the ground and being walked on all the time and never appreciated for all the good that we do.Being a lonely star up in the sky not appreciated by anyone until one day...What it would like to be to be walking along one day and seeing your twin.What it is like to read for the first time.Two hands telling the story of their life from their point of view.What it feels like to be sick when everyone else is healthy or to be healthy when everyone else is sick.God asking for a break and asking you to fill in for the day.I would say more if you want.Love to see you Have a fabulous day!
