    dotsRelationship?dots
    -------------------------------------------


    He's a hard worker, a good provider for his beautiful family. He stumbles into consciousness every morning, turns on his side, and gives his wife a kiss on the cheek (but it's dry it's oh so dry there's nothing in it at all...)

    His wife is pretty, but faded. White hair peeks out from under the red like a threat. She wakes up to the sound of her husband's electric razor in the bathroom. Every morning. She sighs deeply, inhaling another day of endless responsibility (but is it worth it is it worth it is it worth it?...)

    At his job, he is a role model. People want to lead the kind of life he leads (but if only they knew if only they knew...)

    He comes home at 6:00 pm, everyday. Shrugs off his jacket, shrugs off another day of his life (when will it end God when will it end?...) His wife has just finished making dinner in the kitchen. She's wearing her light blue scrub. She works the graveyard shift at the hospital. This is the only time they have together. Thirty minutes.

    "How was your day, hon?" he asks, sitting down at the table. "Fine, just fine," she says, nodding (no it wasn't don't lie just tell him why don't you...) "And the kids?" he asks next, systematically (do they know their mommy and daddy no not at all...) In truth, their daughter shelters a secret that they will not be let in on for nine more months. In truth, their son is being tormented at school because he's different (mommy and daddy try to ignore it but they know they know he's different...) "Fine," she tells him. "The kids are just fine."

    The thirty minutes are up. She leans over and gives him a kiss (another dry one dry as bone...) She leaves.

    He eats his dinner.

      i guess what you have to get from this is that you have to give your heart soul body and mind to a family or else it just doesnt work right. and you always need to have good communication other wise problems dont get fixed and people begin to loose intorest. nice work and great way to get people thinking. lia

      Unfortunate. I blame society. Very good writing that needs little improvement. This is what I call 'stuck in a rut' and the best thing to do is something crazy. Really. It's not just the voices in me head saying that. :)

      I'm so in love with your writing. For someone of such youngblood you've said this well and i'm adding it to my favorites. I've never been through something like this and i can only sympathize, but i'm truly glad you wrote this.

      This is a painfully beautiful and true piece. People too often live lies in order to have what is believed to be true happiness. The wife, the home, the family... but is it the answer to true happiness? Not always.

      I really, really liked this. Emotional, and true. Life isn't always sweet, or even bitter-sweet. I think it really captured something in life that people often choose to ignore. I found the piece had a beat and a flow while still retaining it's sense of spontanious wording. I must say, I really did love this.
