A Love Poem

Poem by Arsiema Berhane

Man! !
You are so serious
You never say nothing funny
You love too much talking
Never giving me a chance to say
Anything.
(though I ain't got nothing to say)

You love talking about your self
You love talking about Philosophy
Two subjects…
Which make me feel sleepy.

You know what?
After all this time
I think I thought of something to say to you.

I love you, but you are boring.

    but to be fair to the guys, they must feel the same way about some women.
    love the poem.
