screams

I can’t hear a pin drop
or rain hitting the ground in the night,
but I heard your screams.
And I woke up to your cries
at one o’clock.
It’ll be okay, I promise –
we’ll look after each other.
——We won’t be alone.
But you looked me in the face,
my cheeks stained with tears
and you didn’t hear a thing.
You turned your back on me,
but I’m still listening in the dark.
