Stand Each Other

Stand Each Other

She’s sitting on his bed
and the two of them are yelling
He’s raising his voice
and she’s shedding her tears,

“We never had this conversation”
“We had it right here
a year ago
a life ago
now it’s time to go,”

and they can’t stand each other’s pain

There’s a thud on the wall and
I’ve begun to cry
“This, right here, is the fucking problem”
My nightmare’s dream of love
