Another late night

Woken from sleep
by screeching wheels
another late night
another sad night.

Knob turn surely
door opens roughly
he walks in abruptly
she sits up quickly.

She looks at him
he looks at her
she looks questioningly
he looks angrily.

She wants answers
what-whom-where
he wants answers
why-what-whom-where.

Angry, without a word
he goes to sleep
lonely, without an answer
she gets down on her knees.
