The Wait...

She waits...wondering how he'll be, today

Will it be okay to let the kids play?

Or will he scream and yell, sending them to their rooms

Praying he doesn't come in, and lower the boom

And the dog, the last time she jumped, it didn't go well

I was afraid to go pick her up after she fell

So she stays tied up, that's no life for a dog

I'm sorry, puppy, for catching you up in my bog

My family keeps asking if everything's okay

I'm ashamed to tell them, I just hope and pray

They don't show up until the bruises heal

Not ready for questions - how do you THINK I feel?

Trapped and alone, like there's no way out

I hear the word "escape", what's that all about?

I married this guy, until death do us part

Can the death they described be the death of a heart?
