Not Waving But Drowning
      by nhawk

When she brings him water and doesn't pull up a chair and stay - maybe he doesn't 
really need her.

When she passes Janet in the hallway and doesn't ask: "What did Ba'al do to him?" - 
maybe he isn't really hurting.

And in her quarters, when she falls to her knees and doesn't make a sound - maybe 
she's not really crying. 

The end

I stole the title "Not Waving But Drowning" from a poem I love by Stevie Smith.
