nov pad 2014 27: appreciate

you grow to appreciate
the quiet

the calm before the storm

before she comes in
and sucks the life
out of the room

with her sighs and cries
for attention

over and over again

you learn to appreciate
the down times

the eye of the hurricane

after she's done in
and fills the silence
in the room

with the snores of
her restless sleep

you lean over her
a lookout in the rain

waiting for her to start
