she waits

she waits
outside the compound
but not for his release
she’s making sure
he’s still inside
she’s looking for reliefshe waits
the nights don’t work
at home in bed
the visions popping
in her head
and yes she wishes
she was dead
but more she wants
him living
deprived of
all the niceties
bereft of
human decency
she hopes his hurt
will bring her back
and make her more forgiving
