He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left, and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came..
There had been many late nights like this one… Late nights that turned into early mornings fighting to stay awake, fighting the worry and the bile that threatened to choke her, and staring at the door, waiting. Lately, she felt as though she was always waiting. Waiting for him to come home. Waiting for everything to blow up in her face. Waiting for the bad news. Always waiting for the second shoe to drop, even though she’d lost the first one long ago.
The sun was peeking through the window this time before he stumbled in, undoubtedly the quietest way he knew how. It usually involved tripping over the rug, even though it hadn’t moved, nearly knocking their wedding portrait off of the wall, and then cursing loudly as he slammed the door. She’d seen the same scene so many times before that it played itself like a movie inside her head. She’d seen it so much before that this time, when the door swung open and he stood there silent, tears welling up in his eyes, she was actually taken aback for a moment before she could find her voice again.
“We… We need to talk.” She said. “Now.”
