Silent Pain, Screaming

She sees them walking, holding hands And yearns for love like that Where a look or touch meets demands And there's someone to chat Her pain is palpable and loud She wonders if they'll hear Her lone heart aches and wears a shroud Her anguish is severe With twisting agonizing throes She wears a smile outside Longing follows where'er she goes She has so much to hide Her heart is screaming for love true A throbbing unspoken Pining for a partner isn't new Her being feels broken Her silent pain is screaming, "When?" Who can quench that longing? It'll be satisfied only then When she's found belonging

Everyone craves for love and a sense of being cared . She will naturally feel sad when she sees other people of her age enjoying that bliss. She cannot express her pain and hides her agony with a smile. A poignant depiction of the inner longings. Well done Jo
