Whisper, giggle, turn.

Turning, looking, questioning eyes.

looking at me

not seeing, just look.

Catch the gaze.

Not a word is spoken.

But shining eyes stare

Then avert.

Look away.

Looking to the floor.

not to me.

not seeing me.


Running in my head

Running, crying, escaping.

turn, giggle, whisper.

Waiting for a day that's

never coming.

Watching him turn again.

Grabbing, cocking, aiming

shiny gray gun in his hands




Not crying.

Day coming, day left.

Is he finally happy?


He looks at me.

Kept my gaze.

This is GREAT. You get the point across in your selection of words, sometimes staccato sentences make fantastic poems like this one.
