we remember

it was that wednesday
you came home late
she was asleep

we were awake
we were waiting

there was anger in your steps
and anger in the way you
flipped the mattress across the room
the lamp hit the wall
and glass
and the phone fell on the floor
and glass

our bedroom was one thin wall away
the door was open
why we were crying
why we were afraid

oh the waves were coming in
and oh the waves were going out
knocking us off our feet
all of us, needing a lifeline

the dark night hid what you did
but in the daylight
in the daylight
and glass
and blood
and glass

(why care)
