▶Those sweet words of love
Were they captivating enough?
They were like a delicious fire
Quickening her pulse.
▶Those heated piercing gazes
Had they undone her restraint?
They were like a tantalising paralysis
Pinning her with their ferocity.
▶Those god gifted lips made
To write stories of passion,
Had they liquified all that
They were like a blessing_ sinful in its
temptation…soulful in its taste.
▶Yet they weren’t enough to haul her
From the black hole of her fears_
Fear of maddening love and its tyrant rule.
Then one cold night the unexpected happened.
▶Walking together while silence & stars guarding
their wayward path, an invisible pull_
Pulsating furiously between & within them.
▶His sheer presence clasped itself
Around her dainty frame and jittery gait.
Her body shook and she fell_
bedazzled by the torrent
Of emotions showering her to the core_ and he held her in his arms;
Like a sacred rose,
Like some holy revelation,
Like a goddess from heavens,
Sent for him, only.
▶The gentle halo of his words,
The softness written in his eyes,
The quiver of his lips
There & then she fell for him
With her body & soul, together….!!
