DAY 22: The Cancer

Posted on 0


There’s a cancer
growing inside our house,
And we pretend
that we don’t see,

My husband used to
love stroking my tender skin,
Now he prefers to
swipe his screen,

I used to roll on the floor
laughing at his cheesy jokes,
now I sit alone at the dinner table
and laugh at memes
I’ve found on my phone,

We rarely stare into
each other’s eyes,
We rarely know
about each other’s days,
And the only sounds
heard in our house
are the beeps coming
from our phones,

We have a cancer
growing inside our house,

Each day
it drives a deeper wedge
between our beating hearts,
And we go on pretending
that we don’t see,

Love & Blessings
