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.
If this poem had a voice, this is what it would sing…
