Empathy, Heartbreak, Love, Pain


His arm wrapped
around her
and she snuggled close
into his chest
and I saw
how this was
intended for me.
A show
to show me
their bond.

And it worked.
I saw his
happiness and
contentment there
with her.
I saw their
that excludes me.
I saw his arms
meant for her
not me.

But I know
his heart beat faster
when she was gone
and our eyes met
our faces glowing
trying hard not to stare,
and almost succeeding.
He felt more then.

But his arms
are around her, still.
