The Words

He sat across from her

Drinking her beauty in.

She felt desire for him

And love blossoming anew.

She was reticent about her feelings

Afraid to speak the words.

Not knowing what the future held,

Fearing he didn’t feel the same.

Though she could no longer hide it,

Her heart about to burst.

She pledged her love to him.

Softly he whispered in her ear,

“I love you too my dear.”


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – reticent
