A Reason Why

He sat there

Showing no emotion

As stoic as usual

Unable to read him

She drew a deep breath

Time and time again

He would go through this

Lost in his own world

While she was left alone

To figure out what to say

Why they couldn’t go this time

Why he had once again

Spoiled their plans

By drinking himself

Into a state

So she would draw on

Her creative imagination

And somehow she would

Try to salvage a relationship

From the sabotage of whiskey

Another family gathering

Not gone to


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – stoic
