THIS LOVE

08 Aug

The message was always cryptic

But it set her heart racing

It didn’t matter who was watching

The smile

The glow on her face, it said it all

Revealing the innermost feelings

The joy in her eyes

Hiding the pain from another time

Another  place

Another love

 

Every day I watched

Seated across from she

The timing was near perfect

The smile

The glow on her face, it said it all

Revealing the innermost feelings

The dimple on her cheek

Settling in like a rain drop

As it hits the sand

This time

This love

 

I could time my meals by her smile

Breakfast, lunch and then its five

And then he appears to take her home

At the dot of six

Not a second more

Not a second less

They hold hands, smiling into each other eyes

Dead to the world all around

Two in the dance of one

Their time

Their love

 

Then one day, I missed breakfast

Her smile faded

An apparition in a desert storm

Another day, dimples repressed

Lunch was spent a-pacing

At five she was at the window

A week of torrents pouring down her face

By six, it was done, like a month you see

Another gone to rest

Lost love

Last love.
