she lay there in the dark, pretending to be asleep, waiting for him to come home.

he walked into the room in the dark, without a care about the noise he made.

she breathed noiselessly.

he threw off his shoes and socks and curled up on his side of the bed, and fell asleep facing the wall.

she lay curled up on her side of the bed, facing her wall, until the the rays of dawn peeked in.

she grabbed her towel and began to prepare for work.

and so, she lay there in the dark again, pretending to be asleep, waiting for him to come home.

he walked into the room, forgetting that he still shared a room with someone else.

she waited noiselessly.

he threw off his shoes and socks and curled up on his side of the bed, facing the wall.

she spoke to her wall : do you still love me ?

he heard her. he heard her question bouncing off from her lips to her wall to his wall to his ears.  

he pulled his blanket closer to his chin, and brought his knees closer to his waist, curled up on his side of the bed.

he replied to his wall : i’m tired.

she heard him. she heard his answer bouncing off from his lips to his wall to her wall to her ears.

she lay curled up on her side of the bed, facing her wall, until the the rays of dawn peeked in.

she grabbed her towel and removed the tear stains from the days/weeks/months/years before.

she left.

and he didn’t even know.
