Rude and Kindness

The two together
unmistakably a couple
nothing conspicuous
nothing noticable

She, fadingly pretty
and him, having a self-satisfied face.
You looked at them
and suddenly it became different

She beamed with pride over her surprise
Then he said something to her.
Curt, unkind

“Oh now, don’t be like that.”
you thought
but he was not pleased,
she was crying

Hopelessly,
heart brokenly,
all to herself,
crying.
