reaching an end

“it’s just…
you never understand”
she sighing
ever so gently
in that woman’s way of
acceptance.

he says
“God! then help me try”
speech
draped curtains of
exasperation,
face lined
mouth opening wide
on the last word

“just help me try”
under breath, pleading…

door clicks shut
giving up.
