Silence

by Chelsea Donahue

He saw something in her that nobody else did,

On those back roads and beaches and covered bridges.

She could have stayed forever, escaping reality and just existing, together.

The way he looked at her said more than words ever could,

And she needed that to feel alive again.

But the temperature broke and the rain came,

Leaving her wondering if it had all been a side effect of the heat.
