She sees him yet he is so far away.
He holds her tight; she feels all alone.
She doesn't need his touch, his gentle kiss or his strong embrace.
She needs his words, his support, his encouragement.
She longs to hear him say, "I love you."
She anticipates his smile accompanied by, "I believe in you."
She wants so much to catch him utter, "You are so beautiful!"
Maybe she is being selfish; maybe she should tell him how lonely she feels.
She wants him to communicate his feelings to her with words, not just actions.
She knows he loves her; she knows he supports her; she knows he thinks she's gorgeous.
But knowing these things don't make her loneliness disappear.
She wants to hear these things.
