K - Kiss

Image courtesy: Google



Hold me close and kiss me 
Like there's no tomorrow
Fingers intertwined
Your breath on my cheeks

Waves caressing our feet
Sweeping the sand beneath 
Golden rays of the setting sun
All mesmerize me 

But none as much as your kiss
Lost in ecstasy
In your warm embrace
Kiss me one last time

Kiss me so that I can remember
When tomorrow is no more
What it feels like 
To be loved like this... 




Linking this post to the A to Z Challenge

P.S. I would like to thank all of you for the amazing response on Gouri :) When I had started penning it, I had no idea where it would go. However, now that I dwell more on Gouri and the story that she wants to be told, I have a feeling that it would be better compiled as a novella rather than blog posts. I have never written one and I have no idea what I'm getting into. But once I figure out the details, I shall share the link. Wish me luck! And, please don't hate me :) You all shall be the first to read it. Promise.

  1. Lovely job! I was breathless after reading that. Too bad I live far from the ocean. (And the image was perfect.)

    1. Thanks a ton, Babe! Wanted to try something out of my comfort zone :)

      The poetry I write seldom rhyme. I take you missing your husband as a sign that my poetry worked!
