Silver Linings

Does every cloud
Have a silver lining?
He asked,
Hope evident in his eyes
And his breath,
Which he held.
She paused before answering,
Unsure how best to proceed.
A thousand unsaid words
Were said with none.
She said.
This time, there is not one.
He did not move.
Face fixed,
Body, motionless
Breath still held.
Only his eyes changed;
Hope, gone.

  1. A lovely thoughtful poem, but oh so sad. I can sympathise with the male character and with his loss of hope.
