He closed the door behind him…

It’s funny…,she said…,I never know what you’re up to…,little brunette lit a cigarette…blew out the match…,One day you’re here makin’ love to me and the next you’re gone just like some old dog retreatin’ from a battle field…,the short woman adjusted her bra strap…, Think you could leave a note or somethin’…gimme some kinda warnin’ the night before that you’re gonna take off like that…hell…I didn’t know if you were headin’ out for work…some girl you got ‘cross town…maybe you gotta whole family I don’t know ’bout…,he took a swig of coffee and glanced over the newspaper on the kitchen table…,Hey…you listenin’ to me…, the old man nodded his head…ran his fingers through his black hair…,You just come and go as you please don’t you…maybe you’re some kinda spirit that runs through this house at midnight…disruptin’ my sleep…makin’ me do things like I never done before…

Like what…

Lots of things…carin’ ’bout a man is one of ’em…never cared for any man ‘fore you…now you got my world all turned upside down…and sideways too…,she took a deep drag and blew out smoke like a dragon…,Where do you go when you leave me…never call or text…just show up at my door ready to screw…and I take you in every time…some kinda fool I am…you don’t ever say a word…just give me that look…that wild look…like your heart’s filled with desire just for me…like I’m your only one…am I…am I your only one…,he took a cigarette from her pack…didn’t say a word…didn’t nod or shake his head…just played with the cigarette…packin’ it on the wooden table…,Well…there’s gonna be some changes…,she said…,One night you come by here I might not be here…might not be waitin’ for ya…I can take off too you know…I don’t have to wait ’round here for you every night…a phone call that never comes…I can go off and do things too…like head out west…or drive on the highway and see where it takes me…maybe I got a piece of action ‘cross town you ever think of that…I can go sit in a bar all night long and have drinks bought for me if I choose…,he smiled…,You need to start communicatin’ with me…tellin’ me what’s goin’ on inside that head of your’s…I can’t read minds you know…but I can tell…I know when a man is not bein’ true…or…has other interests…,he got up and kissed her on the forhead…walked towards the door…she stood there in silence…quiet as a church…,You comin’ back tonight…,she whispered…he closed the door behind him…
