mirror maze

she
got out of the car
at the red light
with
a dramatic sigh
swearing
she would
never come back

two hours later
she knocked
at the door
shivering
from the rain
with remorse
running like mascara
down her cheeks

he
was already in bed
long passed out
from another
needless fight
tired
of the endless cycle
of forgive and forget

both options
left him wondering
if daydreams
and night terrors
were the same thing
in a mirror maze
trapped
in happily ever after
