A Poem by Elizabeth J. Gelinger

About unanswered questions.

Sitting next to you
I felt my lips getting numb
Because the blood 
Running inside them 
Wanted to know
How the blood 
On your own lips

Ok picky I know but did you smack him? He seems to have blood 'on' his lips lol!
Another piece that portrays someone fixated with someone else.

Unanswered? or perhaps they weren't asked?

Seems so many pause in their silence ...only to continue it.

I can help but chuckle because I have seen young people out on a date looking uncomfortable, and now I am wondering how many of them were thinking like this? I love this idea and feel motivated by it and I am considering writing something like this. Bravo! When you can inspire other writers you have done a great job five out of five Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!

Nice use of words. You create place and a vision. Your good description made the situation come alive. Thank you Elizabeth for sharing the excellent poetry.
