Sensational Haiku Wednesday - Generosity

Join me as I participate in Sensational Haiku Wednesday... link up with Jenn from You know... that Blog?

Join the fun!

This week's theme:
Generosity

In silence she waits
Arms folded across her chest
Unmoving, he stares

One minute passes
Two minutes, three. One tear falls.
He swallows and sighs

"Tell me what to say"
She laughs, it's a choking sound.
"I shouldn't have to"

"I didn't mean it"
She shrugs one shoulder briefly
"No, you never do."

He looks to the side
Nervously, he licks his lips
He takes a deep breath

"I was wrong, I'm sorry"
She smiles at him, at his
generosity

"Of course I love you
I can't help but forgive you."
Their embrace ends it.

Just me, AJ
