sleepyskin's Diaryland Diary

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

in his living room

it was a night just like any other.
they undressed and settled into bed.
it was routine, routine, routine.
she laid there, her back to his, her
body not touching his body at all uner the blankets.
"she said something to
get his attentuon and he
he said something back.
then she began to unleash the things she wanted to say but didn't know how.
it came out all wrong and it came out
too fast for him to see.
he just agreed and went back to sleep.
red anger welling up, not wanting to just
roll over and sleep and pretend like
nothing was wrong, she
slept on the couch that night, watching
the cars on the street drive past
watching the snow fall, watching
the orange-hue of the streetlamps possess
very defined inches of wall and carpet
in the living room.
