The light of the candle flickers away,
leaving us in the darkness,
with a wall of pillows separating us in bed.
Silence fills the room,
just our breathing can be heard,
while the both of us staring at the ceiling through the darkness,
not wanting to talk,
for it would make it worse.
You turn on your side to face me,
I can’t see you,
but can feel your eyes on me,
giving off a vibe of uncertainty.
Turning on my side,
staring at you in the darkness,
I listen to you breathing,
hoping that both of our anger fades away,
along with this wall of pillows.
