She smiled at you today.

She smiled at you today.
A sweet smile that probably had little meaning behind it other than a greeting of:
‘Hello, how are you today?’
But it made your day.
You wondered to yourself later why it had been so significant.
Why such a small gesture had filled your body with a sensation that could only be compared to some form of longing.
It came at you so fast it left you breathless.
You are lonely.
Lonely, yet surrounded by people.
Surrounded by people that would never understand the magnitude of your feelings.
But in that small smile you found some sort of understanding.
So you smiled back a smile that said ‘I’m fine’.
You think she knew you were lying.
But you never saw her again.
So you never knew.
She smiled at you today.
And it really meant something.
