It Could Have Been Better

The exchange of looks.
Each guilt secretly there
in the minds of both.

The heavy heartbeats.
Sadness creeps like a
thief.

The smell of a ghost
from the past stings
strongly in the air.

There is no parting
word. No utterance of
anything.

It could have been
better. It could have
been better.
