All you really wanted, was some time,
I came home after days of working,
and what did I say,
after kissing your cheek?
“I have to write this story”,
“I haven’t blogged all day”, I said.
“I’ll just be 30 minutes”, I said.
Two hours later, I was still at the table,
writing my heart out,
while you had gone to the bedroom,
to light candles,
We were supposed to watch a movie,
or that British mystery series,
but I felt stupid,
when I saw the candles.
The fire had gone out.
Later we were next to each other,
in bed, alone,
back to back.
You were wondering,
about my heart,
I was dreaming of ways,
to make it up,
a dinner out? the Greek place?
All you really wanted was some time.
Please forgive me.
I need to live it,
of just writing about it.
