The darken theater held them there they sat
she looking down and he looked out together 
neither spoke, they came together but alone.

So many married years had passed each more alone.
She looked down and chatted on her phone, he sat
near me, we starred toward the movie together. 

They never knew how sad they looked together 
but all could see, and none envy, two alone. 
I shook my head and sat silent as they sat,

 side by side, they sat together, but alone.

    Debs, I utterly love the message of your tritina. It was one of my favorites for what you were actually saying about a married couple. Congratulations. Soupmail for you.

    I seen that you had grouped this one as a sestina, so of course I had to come and check it out. But look at this.... a tritina, with the exact words flowing all the way through. Awesome! I have never read one like this before. Loved it, soupmail in a minute! love and hugs, catie :)

    I love it Debbie - so estranged and at the movies yet. I've been sick and not able to concentrate on poetry. Nothing serious love, kathy
