**topic* you never were good at charades

by Kimberly Bare

silent gestures
were lost on you
trying to show
through touch
and look
and pleading sighs

i should have rented
a neon sign
to catch your wandering eye

whoever said
"actions speak louder than words"


Author's Note: Thanks to Stephanie Laubscher for a great topic!
