Sunday Scribblings: Invitation

Join us

her eyes met mine,
glimmering sadness echoed.
she sipped her coffee,
and slipped away slowly.
i was searching for a sign,
a sign that would assure me her smile.
she seemed too far to return,
too sad to speak.
time ticked by, slowly,
the wind gushed through her hair.
silence had become a part of the conversation,
her eyes were broken like her heart.
lost love, lost life,
my thoughts merged with hers.
as we rose to leave,
she held out her hand.
like an invitation into her world,
i put my hand in hers and invited her to mine.
we walked away into a routinal life,
with hopes of undoing this pain.
we are hopeful still,
join us..
