Morning Sickness

Light draining from summer sky
Life draining from a marriage

Nothing matters anymore
Choking on tears

Everyone can hear them
Windows opened to cool night

A domestic blister bursts in
Removes all dream of sleep

She's beyond distraught
His vocabulary in retreat

It's twenty-to-two
She's twenty-nine, in pain

Trying to end it all
Before dawn throws it all up again
