Where Have You Been?

As soon as the question is formed,
I can see her turning the key
and her mind races,
shifting gears, churning,
attempting to concoct
some reasonable explanation
why she was out so late.
She begins, her voice is soft, thick
like the hum of an engine.
Slowly she lurches forward,
her eyes downcast.
She starts to sweat,
a steady drip of oil,
slides down her face.
The engine of her deceit revs,
I imagine her heart it races
beating faster faster.
With each word,
her breath comes in
short gasps.
She is stalling.
She knows,
I can tell the truth of her lie.
Her engine gives out, she sighs,
revealing all. She cringes
awaiting my reply.
I pull her close.
Just don’t do it again,
I can’t lose
my baby.
