Pending Love

October 22, 2008
By Ashley Knox, Kendall Park, NJ

A loving glance
Unreturned
By cold eyes.

A deep sigh
Compelled
By loneliness.

Restrained by dignity,
The hollow tears remain
Behind closed lids.

Restrained by dignity,
The angry words remain
Behind sealed lips.

Restrained by
Rejection,
He cannot get up to chase her
As the moment passes,
As the plates are cleared.

A loving glance
Unreturned
Said more than words.
