The silence between us rings louder than any bell.
by Laya Bajpai
We stand there staring at each other but not a single word passes our lips
The silence is so palpable you could hold it with your hands
Why this silence you may ask, is it ego or shyness, hesitation?
There is electricity in the air the attraction between the two can be felt.
Yet there is silence, neither reaches out to the other with words or even hands.
Suddenly the train begins moving and all the attraction turns to dust.
