i am suddenly more

i am suddenly more
distant, stay
more still
for fear of being
caught pulling
away. i sneak in
one more
bath than is
routine for our
kind of winter,
trust that the water
bill will not turn
me in. i head for
bed earlier
or later, find pockets
of silence in the
dark comforting.
i no longer wait for
you to take notice,
i can do this
entirely on my own
.
