Papering the cracks

Is it wrong to stay

without a reason?

More than it is

wrong to leave?

The flat was less than

bricks and water.

It needed work to

paper in the cracks.

So I painted up the

stairs and put

lino on cupboard


To make it feel

like home.

The bed is new–

king sized.

Enough space for

us to sleep


Don’t want to

disturb him

when I leave

in the mornings.

I over compensate,

Already guilty.

Of hurting us both

by believing.

My pretence will be


Is it really a lie

if I’m also lying

to myself?
