BITTERSWEET

Silent torrents of emotion
Rage under the surface,
Hearts surging with
Remembered passion and pain,
As inane conversation
Floats through the air,
Seemingly effortlessly.
Smiling faces reveal
A reunion of friends to the
Uninterested passersby.
Unaware of the intensity
Of the moment.
A bittersweet blend of
Sadness, acceptance and love,
Causing small touches to linger
Moments too long,
Conversational pauses,
To speak profoundly in their silences.
An innocent hug,
A kiss on the cheek,
Departures to chosen lives.
No regrets they lie to themselves.

Leysa, sounds like all the emotions are blended in with a whole lot of frustration?
Very well written and emotional. Bill

Leysa, outstanding writting. We can call this the great cover-up. Get alot of this at class reunions. How I hate those.

I love the image of "small touches to linger" how thrilling is that moment! Enjoyed this thoroughly. Mal.
