So you're saying it's make believe?", she asked with a pout.

"I'm saying it's just make believe," as he gained in clout.

"So you never really loved me?" she repeated her pain.

"They're just words," as he followed her words train.

"I see," said she nodding her head.

"You do", said he still wanting her in bed.

"Meet you in fiction," she said with a giggly grin.

"Meet me in fiction," he sighed as he let her in.

Can you tell me why not?

Punctuation, etc.
Just a few things.

[1] Line one should not have a comma after the quotes because the quoted sentence ends in a question mark.
[2] The comma in line six should be inside the quotes, not out.
[3] The poem is rather simple and very nearly cliche - not sure this is a good thing.
[4] I liked the 'make believe' and her agreement to meet in 'fiction', though I don't understand one bit why 'he sighed as he let her in'. That makes him sound exasperated by her but he was the one who wanted her in bed. It's not congruent.

Otherwise, a decent poem.

thanks Amie
I think he sighed because he wanted to end the relationship, but there was something keeping him in it. Thanks for your comments.
