Between the Lines

Unspoken words,

I heard for the first time

Twas scornfully fair

Yet romantically dear.


Uncleared intentions,

I resolved this moment.

So spitefully adoring

But clearly confusing.


Unfelt fondness,

Relished by now.

How painstakingly fragile

And affectionately frail.


You hurt me. You broke me.


Day Four Prompt: Between The Lines – Sara Bareiles

    This is neat “affectionaly frail” and “painstakingly fragile” almost oxymorons I think. But very interesting 🙂 I like your take!
