You look into her eyes

She looks back into yours

You two read the minds of each other

Know the words at the edge of each other’s tongues that want to escape

Know how each other’s heart is beating

Know how each other’s heart is bleeding

Can see the cuts but can’t heal them

In the end, you both remain silent walking past each other

Feet leaving tracks of blood

Rushing to hide and embrace ourselves 

Swallowing the tears trying to palliate the fire blazing within

    The sadness of an old love silently passing by like a stranger. Well expressed Arvy

      Well done. Starts out like a love poem, but turns into something so much more. Still a love poem, but a hard-nosed, honest, painful, grown-up gritty love poem. One moment hearts are beating, next thing you know they are bleeding. Sigh...

        That's the thing about love, it starts like the magical thing that takes your breath away, but then ends breaking your heart and leaving you helpless. Thank you for reading dear poet!

        Intense, intense love, intensely painful when left unspoken
        A superb write.

          Thank you, SureshG!
