I Don't Love You
The telephone rings:
I answer, Hello!
The voice on the telephone says,
ďHi, itís Kristine.Ē
ďDid I wake you?Ē
No, I wasnít sleeping.
ďHow are you?Ē
ďIíve been dying to say something to you.Ē
ďI should tell you this in person instead of on the phone.Ē
ďI hope you donít mind.Ē
Go ahead, Iím listening.
ďIíll come straight to the point, I love you.Ē
I beg your pardon!
ďI said I love you.Ē
You love me!
I hope Iím not hearing you correctly.
ďIím not joking.Ē
Hmm, how should I respond?
This isnít what I was expecting to hear.
ďI know this is kind of sudden for you.Ē
Uh, Iím sorry, sweetheart.
I really donít want to hurt your feelings,
But I donít love you in a romantic way.
ďYouíre a lonely man and you need a wife.Ē
ďI think Iím the perfect girl for you.Ē
Yes, Iím lonely and I need a wife,
But I never flirted with the notion of marrying you.
The way you feel about us is like a fairy tale.
ďSometimes dreams turn into reality.Ē
ďTogether we can make this fairy tale come true.Ē
Did you get this idea from a movie?
Itís not going to work.
Whatever youíre thinking, drop it now.
ďYour poems gave me the impression that you love me.Ē
Wait a moment:
Do you blame me for your misinterpretation?
Thatís your assumption.
I asked you to read my poems and make critical comments,
But I wasnít leading you on.
You called me repeatedly.
I answered my phone out of courtesy,
But I never called you back.
Didnít you notice?
ďI donít believe the things you wrote are just fantasies.Ē
ďAre you sure you feel nothing for me?Ē
Yes, Iím positive.
Iím not in love with you, Kristine.
If I were in love with you,
You wouldnít have to ask me that question.
Youíre a very nice girl,
But thatís beside the point.
ďWill you at least think about what Iíve said?Ē
What else is there to consider?
Iíve already made my final decision.
And I refuse to start a titillating conversation with you.
I donít mind you calling me,
But please limit your calls to a social chat.
If you canít do that,
Donít bother to call me.
ďYou sound a bit upset now.Ē
ďCan we discuss the subject further some other time?Ē
Your persistency amazes me.
No, donít waste your time.
Save your credit.
I just donít love you.
Donít you get it?
Good night, Kristine.
