The red Cardinal

It came for you..

I looked up..now aware of my the tears flowing down my face.

Aware of his handsome presence, his gentleness, his warmth..

I see the bird.. are you here for me?

Tears stop for a glimpse then I let myself slip right into my sadness..

 

 

Watching

I see you, you’re tense. Right leg tight, tummy in a knot. You don’t make eye contact, your words sharp, heavy.

Take a deep breathe, relax your shoulders, look him in the eye.

I can’t, I won’t. He doesn’t see me. I speak, but my words don’t matter, my body sits here, neglected. Yearning for his touch..

I see you.. you’re loved..
