Love that lasts

She leaned in for a kiss—
my angel,
a flower petal herself.

My closed eyes
ticklish
with her breath.

With abated breath,
I waited,
as I felt her tender fingers,

touch my rouge hair,
wind around
my neck and heart.

Then, she snapped it.
Well! At least,
I never felt the pain.

I am Shaily Agrawal–an Instructional Designer, working mother and a small-town Indian woman with a perspective of my own. I write because life would be unbearable otherwise. Here is a piece I published on my existing blog: https://fishinthetrees.home.blog/
