Holding Back the Tears...

Confused...wondering...
did she somehow mis-step?
Were declarations spoken...
too soon...to deeply?
Male...female distinctions...
emotional...cerebral...
meaning different things to each.

It's usually she who waits...
watching at the window...
listening for the ring.
A cloud of uncertaintly gathers
raining droplets of doubt and sadness.

A heart squeezing ache decends.
It colors all her actions...
all thoughts...
and follows her throughout the day.
In the night...it troubles her sleep
and haunts the pathways of her dreams.

She will pack away her memories
and preserve them...
like flowers pressed
between the pages of a book.

She wakes in the morning...
another day without him.
Did she let down her guard
and expect too much?
She walks through the day
and turns her smile to the world...
while holding back the tears.
