Sumyanna Writes

WomanAlone 

I whispered

in the silent moments,

when no one else

was brave to speak

I wanted people to know –

I knew they were there.

Often, in the shadows

they would stand quietly,

hands in their pockets,

head down,

holding their worn,

uncomfortable smile

for fear someone would notice

that they were all alone.

But I had learned somehow –

to be unafraid.

I know the yearning

the desire for kindness

and I know how many times –

I was left empty-handed

wearing a well-worn smile

to hide the tears.

I saw you standing

in the corner

all alone

but I did not allow

the emptiness between us

to swallow us up.

Hand raised,

a rush forward,

“Hello”

 and then . . .

   your

     beautiful

       smile.
