He feigned sleep as I dressed,
Fighting to keep his body still.
I could sense his awareness
As I completed my morning ablution.
Makeup carefully applied,
Masking the grief.
Mascara eyes,
Lipstick smile.
Coffee choked down
In desperate search for
Caffeine-fueled energy.
I race to the garage,
Careful not to let him know
That I know
He is awake.
Damn the sun for shining
Forcing this day
Out of shadow.
The radio DJ chirping merrily
Oblivious to the
Gnawing in my stomach.
Just another workday.
Happy anniversary to me.

(To help explain -- today is our 25th anniversary, but my husband is going through a mid-life crisis and we are merely roommates -- very friendly and civilized ... and like living in hell)

damn the sun for shining
what a line that is
it is from these pits that many amazing things come
all the best (i do know these days)

nice imagery here,
maybe he was being quite, to surprise you later ...? ... Just a maybe,
Exccellent write,

Leysa, wonderful poem. I've done that before. It can be quite a turn-on. Never forgot a birthday or especially an anniversary.

Men to that all the time.
