She stared at him with confidence

Too much for him to bear.

How strong you are!

Her words vibrated.

His troubled eyes could barely look up

The bruises on his back

Too heavy of a pain

To start all over again

What a burden.

You are powerful!

She gazed at him with honor.

For fear of yet another compliment

He turned his back away.

His feet heaved across the open door

Her hand a tight grip on his shoulder.
