He flicked the light unknowing
Put down his keys and hat
Took off each shoe quite slowly
On the kitchen chair he sat.
The rain outside had tapered
Patting lightly on a pane
Inside a dot past chilly
Turn up the heat again.
Dinner in the freezer
Not much of an appetite
A bare and quiet evening
Hope for hurried night.
Another day has ended
Along with its vibrant sun
The world outside has ended

A silence has begun.


So easily it falls
After climb so hard
Relief releasing form
Returning now
To practiced ways

Comfort through a norm.
