Body Language

The look on your face,

The fire in your eyes,

I could tell that something

Had gone terribly awry.

You looked down at your feet,

You walked straight ahead,

I knew that later

Your heart would feel     .

I stared in the mirror

And looked at my face

Somehow I knew

We would leave this place.

I was tempted to take my time

And pack my bags,

But I knew if I left,

My heart would be sad.

For if I was with you,

My life wouldn't be complete.

Simply we are getting along with only our feet.
