Why Should I Waste Your Time

'Say it! '

No!
I've kinda said that already.

'Well,
Say that! '

No!
I'm saving that to say later.

'Then what is the purpose,
Of saying anything at all? '

Exactly!
And that's the point I want to make.
Why should I waste your time...
By wasting mine?
Trying to find something to say.

'Then don't say anything! '

I wouldn't,
If you weren't here!

Ha - excellent! I totally relate to this today after a conversation I could not have with a 'caring' friend lastnight.
