The Bench

They sat there a long long time
Aware of each other
Seemingly revelling in the silence
Secretly despising it

He summons the courage and turns to her
She turns too
Feeling his eyes on her
Their eyes meet
They stare in each other’s eyes a long long time

After eternity he raises his hand
He longs to touch her face
Distracted by the movement she blinks
Their stare is broken
Their only link
She returns to staring far ahead

Why did he have to raise his hand
He should have been content
At least they’d had each other’s attention
Now she was back to staring ahead of her
What was she looking at anyway?
He turns to her again
She doesn’t turn this time

He’ll have to go
