The Dissolving Heart

There he sat across the room from her. He was so beautiful that to look at him took her breath away. She sat with her chin in her hand and concentrated on him. The words in her mind went something like this.

“If you love me stand up, turn around, and walk over here to me.” With all the emotion in her heart she waited. Nothing happened.

“If you care for me stand up, turn around and wave at me.” With a doubtful heart she waited. Nothing happened.

“If you like me turn around and smile at me.” With a sinking heart she waited. Nothing happened.

“If I mean anything to you nod your head.” With a heavy heart she waited. Nothing happened.

Then while she waited something did happen.

He got up and without turning or looking or waving or smiling, he walked to the door opened it and walked out.

There she sat across the room and as the door closed her heart dissolved into nothing. His name was the last thing from her lips as he took her breath away.
