These our demons

The image shows a black coloured full face mask held in both hands of a person, not shown in the frame.

Your face a mask
pale against the pillow,
eyes watching
aren’t they?

Your head twitches
you turn towards the wall,
not speaking
are you?

I watch and wait
listen to your breathing,
still awake
aren’t you?

Then, the tirade
hateful words tumble out,
awareness
is total.

Lips turn upwards
this, your mischievous smile,
acting up
…aren’t you??

  1. There are many misfunctioning relationships. I knew a couple who would not go to bed angry with each other… unfortunately they argued until the wee hours right under the room I was supposed to be sleeping in… (my parents). I always wondered how they managed to stay together. Just made me want to get out of ‘the’ house quicker.
