The Love Affair

Together we stroll
Along white plains daily.
With my fingers
Gripping firmly her tiny waist.

My feelings
She put in black and white
Combining lineation
For generations to stare in awe.

On my palm she lay
At night time
Never sleeping
Ever ready

To trap
Overflowing thoughts.
Preventing them
From fleeing.

Indispensable She has become
So, we live on each other’s pockets.
For Her presence
Is just so irresistible.

An oath have we taken
My blood
And Her ink
Forever to be one.
