At Even Odds

I choose to love you in silence

She thinks of him as she awakes each morning, and he thinks of her as he goes to sleep each night.

She has a thousand questions she would ask him, and he has a thousand things he would tell her.

She walks past him wondering if he notices her, and he walks past her wondering if she would reject him.

She imagines him happy with another woman, and he imagines her in bed with another man.

She is unhappy as a result and tries to forget about him, he is jealous as a result and decides to give up on her.

And yet…

She thinks of him as she awakes each morning, and he thinks of her as he goes to sleep each night…
