13

and counting…

Late nights, early mornings

Slamming doors and muted screams

Nothing fair and everything oh so unreasonable

Sharp words and hormones rage and sweet little boys seem long lost

And then pushed away frustrated and confused

Fathers fail to find common ground

Until tearful calm returns

 

Wi-Fi Outage

Got teenagers?

Raging, doors slam and knotted stomachs stir

Another day another night another fight

As hormones rage and darkness falls

And once tender caress no longer soothes

There in the dark wet cheeks and heaving chest

All seems so lost and nothing causes smiles to spring

Until selected, renewed and connected

Heart slows, head clears and once more peace returns
