just a little tenderness

stone cold heart
eyes down
I don’t feel the need anymore
to pretend this is going anywhere

coming in the door
with the latest from your day
I half listen and nod
while preparing the final meal

late at night while lying in bed
you reach over for
just a little tenderness
while I turn away
