He asked her,
Do you love me?
She inhaled his Question
And exhaled Yes
Saying nothing
Him not knowing
Is better
Than any other
Decision she is making
— all her life
Love has
Its way of
Taking her breath away
This one especially
She keeps
Feelings to herself
Just to

Esmeralda Balita is a living paradox.
