No Passion

by Minna Von Walden

Her lips touched his
A moment of tenderness
From her lips to his
Met with a chilled firmness
A tight lipped coldness
In his kiss, no passion was found
His heart hardened by disappointment
Embedded there before her arrival in his life
A coldness that even the warmth of her could not heat
A heart so cold that the tenderness of hers couldn’t soften it.
