Say What?

Could you run that by me again?
I thought I heard you mention --
just under your breath --
(you do that a lot,
don't you know) --
That maybe,
just maybe
you thought I was a little out of line,
galloping off that way in mid-sentence,
just before you made another one of those useless pronouncements
about your important job and your important life?
Don't you get it?
It's all supposed to be
about ME!
I see.
You were trying to say you loved me.
Could you say that again?
I guess I just wasn't listening...
