Can we just have one more night she said.
He listened but said no.
Well if we can't have one more night she said,
then why don't you just go?
He thought about her answer
and rued what he had heard.
She let the silence fill the room
and remembered his one word.
Later after the love-making
the word stayed in her head.
She never asked for one more night
so he upped and left her bed.
