Understanding Silent Communication --  G

Unmoving

her eyes stared straightforward

- empty.

The lines of her face

- hard.

 

Her normally strong pace

missed its usual confidence;

an aura of loneliness and loss

surrounded the petite figure.

 

The companion by her side

she did not notice

- ostensible.

 

Silent he walked

next to her,

making a statement

with his presence alone.

 

Halting in motion

she lowered her head.

 

He waited;

his eyes caressed

her small form.

Finally giving in to the urge

to comfort her,

he reached out,

wrapping his arm

around her waist.

 

One reticent tear

escaped her eyes.

Without looking at him,

she leaned towards

his proffered calm haven.

 

They moved on

- holding onto each other.
