Speechless

on finally reaching the end

•

as he reached the threshold
he hesitated
stopped
breathed in
partially turned
head cocked
breath caught
hand resting on the door

their eyes met
held
each wanting to speak

…silence

she sighed
looked away
he dropped his head
exhaled
pushed open the door
stepped through
walked slowly on
never looking back

it had all been said
