This Time and Place

Rain is falling from the sky.

He sits alone looking out the window.

Waiting for time to pass by.

Until she's here, there is no where to go.

He sees headlights pull into the drive.

His heart starts to beat in his chest.

Although he is on no drugs, he suddenly feels high.

How could she cause such an awful mess.

She came in the door, like all the times before.

But this time he was not there to greet her with a kiss.

She felt tension in the air that she could not ignore.

She took off her coat and then heard the click.

The light lite up the darkened room.

He sat on the couch with papers on his lap.

Her mind and body was over come with doom.

Silence was broken as thunder let off a big clap.

You don't have to say a word, he said.

I know the whole story about your secrets and lies.

I have spent all day trying to wrap it all around my head.

And begging someone to answer my cries.

I don't know how you could do this to us.

All these years and you are just going to throw it all away

For a man that doesn't even deserve to be called puss.

Go ahead and try but there is nothing you can say.

It didn't matter how he knew, her secret was out.

She saw the pain in his eyes and the realization was clear.

Life as she knew it was done, there was no doubt.

She wished she could just vanish or just disappear.

Don't try to say I'm sorry because it will never be enough.

I don't know where we go from here or even what end is up.

You broke my heart and I thought I was tough.

A part of me just wants to give up.

She saw the tears roll down his cheeks.

She had never seen him cry or even shed a tear.

His undoing was her deceit.

She had broken everything he held dear.

He closed the distance between them.

Laid his hand gently on her face.

I said I'd love you 'till the end.

The end is this time and place.
