Hidden Yearning

The candle’s light is burning

She looks out the window

He waits at his balcony

Deep shadows outline her face

He stares looking for a thrill

She smiles in response

He catches a breath

For it is a first for the moon

To smile in his direction

A hand caresses her shoulder

He knows she’s not alone

It pulls her back

And the candle is blown out
