Frustrated Echoes

Invisibility cloaks his smile, smile

that betrays his nonchalance for her, her

frustration keeps him engaged, engaged

with hope of a future nevermore, more

or less a challenge to her heart, hurt

Singed from a touch that is no more,

more

time inflames the pain of absence,

since

he retreated and she regretfully withdrew,

drew

imaginary lines of need and desire,

sire 

without his damsel in distress, 

stress

flows from his fingers to paper,

per…

haps he is now free to write, 

right?

      1. I think it’s good writing if it becomes personal for the reader. More than just words. Yes, it certainly brought one particular person from my past to mind, a challenging person as you put it, but not all the memories are bad. There is pain mixed in with the heartbreak (in my case) but also some residual sighs and gentle smiles. So for that, yes, I am thankful.
