    She asked him if he needed something before she
    went to bed.
    He turned his head and mumbled something that
    she never understood.
    She watched him for a moment more , just a silhouette
    in the door.
    Nice home, nice car, him making digits like a basketball
    star.
    Still an empty nursery, he goes to bed last.
    Wondered when the passion would subside, just how
    long would it last.

    She asked him to come to bed early she didn't want to
    fall asleep alone. He turned to say something five minutes
    later but she was gone.
    Nice looking woman, nice in everyway. He didn't know what
    to tell her, he felt she wouldn't stay.
    She could have any man she wanted, but still she wanted him.
    His child, his heart , his hand , him lying next to her in their bed.
    Instead......
    He opened another beer and settled in, hoping she would
    be fast asleep before he climbed into bed.

    The drugs had taken all his juice it took so long what was the use.
    He found himself getting more angry by the minute.
    No point in sliding in , if he couldn't stay in it.
    He thought he turned his life around, and now it was all good.
    He just wanted to make love to his wife......oh how he wished
    he could.
    She wouldn't understand, that it was not the curve of her hips, or the scar over her top lip. She would think something was wrong
    with her and that would really be low down.
    So each night he just gave a ......silent TURN DOWN!!!!!!

    Thank you scribes for feeling the vibe!

    Somebody always has a story sadder than your own.
    I guess that's what they mean by scribes being the
    historians!!!!!! Somebody got to tell the story.....
    I am honored that you took notice!
    Blessings on Ya House!
