Say the Words

By Myranda Grecinger

Fiery wind Blows through my hair

You start to speak I flash a glare


There is no sound But the rumbling of the car

Thank god the house Isn’t very far


I won’t give up and I won’t give in

After all, Someone has to win


I hate being mad But I can’t let it go

I will not admit What we both already know


As we pull in the drive I'm surprised to see

The sadness in your eyes And the hurt caused by me


I try so hard To turn away

After all there’s nothing Left to say


But I can’t ignore As you turn out the light

And fall asleep Without saying goodnight


I curl up Feeling cold and alone

Tormented and sleepless A dog with no bone


As daylight begins crawling Its way through the room

I dread the next moments I know seal me doom


Your eyes flutter open And you turn with a grin

And sweetly say good morning And ask how my night had been


I am so exhausted, sad and angry, How can you be cheery and bright?

I’m not even sure What lead to the fight last night?


Then something happened Though I struggled with all my might

I felt my head hang in defeat And choked out the words….. o.k. you’re right.

Yes, it is true..... sometimes....far and few between....though it does happen on those tiny occurances that my husband is right and I am wrong....
