Poets & Poetry


by Tripti Rathore (18)

Before she said everything
She looked into his eyes,
Wanted to see the love for the last time.
Then took a deep breath closed her eyes
And let it all out.
She said everything.
And he looked in her eyes
To make sure that she meant all that she said.
He said nothing but kept looking at her
With an expression
She could never understand.
