cracked heart picture in pavement“How many times are you going to bring that up?”

“I didn’t say a thing.”

“Oh, but that look.”

“I wasn’t looking at you.”

“But you were thinking of me, weren’t you?”

“Because you stepped on my heel.”  

“That was an accident. I told you.”

“Why stand so close to me?”


“I mean, you have this entire ballroom, brimful of people. Why stand right behind me?”

“Wanna tell you something.”

“I don’t want to hear what you have to say.”

“I forgive you.”


“Happy Valentines Day.”

“You said that last year.”

“But this time I mean it.”
