Her eyes sought solace in mine,
unable to hide her fears.
They naught but a cold stare did find,
as they welled up with tears.

In the moment it had lingered there,
her heart my gaze had broken,
as floated to her through the air
these words I'd not yet spoken.

Silent did their utterance come,
No excuse could I devise
to steer her thoughts, this subject from
she could see right through my lies.
