Near Our 14th Anniversary

Your wrist has almost healed where I restrained
The slap you tried to give me when we fought
I wonder now if anything was gained
Although I know it probably was not
I wonder why I said those words to you
“I just don’t care. I really just don’t care.”
And when you lunged I wonder if you knew
I thought that you might kill me then and there
That room will never be a place of peace
And now this house can never be a home
The intermittent doubts will never cease
And now begins the time we’ll sleep alone
Does every man who argues with his wife
Keep track of every single kitchen knife
