Look away


He looks away as she walks in.
She looks away from him and
Stands off to one side, her arms
Hugged around her frail body…

He tries talk to her, once… twice…
Three times he tries to speak to her,
Three times he fails...
Three times she ignores him…

On the fourth time he manages to make a sound,
And she looks at him and he looks at her.
That's all they do, they look at each other
As the silence in the room, grows thick and awkward.

Neither one says a word – they just look.
One moment apart, standing on two different sides,
Two different paths of life…

She kisses him and walks away
He doesn't know who she is anymore,
And he asks himself as she kissed him,
What have I done? Why did I let her do this…?

There is no answer as she leaves, falling prey to her past…
Their passion and love… cannot save her from her past...
There is no answer, when he cries for her.

She left him… to stay strong…
Faith, as it is made to be known,
Is blind, is it not?
