A Thoughtful Response

Quick answers are not planned

Not as rich as one wants

But with the time needed

We give back so much more

One man asks his girl

Do you love me?

She reflects, breathes deeply, and raises an eyebrow

Then, exhaling, she responds with a smile

The air between them froze

Complicated relationships

Deserve more

But often we find answers in the curl of a lip

The angle of an eyebrow

The chisel of a chin

The finer movements in our face

Often speak without words
