Thousands and millions, of excuse I make,
Just to steal some moments with you.
I look into your eyes, your beautiful browns,
And pour my heart out to you.

I spend my days writing poems and letters,
All glorifying how amazing you are.

Your deep hoarse voice, so sweet to my ears.
And when I hold your hands, I feel a fire ignite.

So, place your delicate, soft lips on mine,
Make me yours, now in this moment.

But please don’t promise a forever together,
This is just pure lust, not love!

For NaPoWriMo Day 15.

        It’s because some people including me find it difficult to share their feelings with someone
        I haven’t told my parents yet that I have a crush
        It’s kinda hars

        I guess you’re right
        I never thought of it that way
        It’s just because some parents in our tradition don’t accept it
        But I think you are right
        Thank you very dear for giving me this wonderful advice

        Thank you very much dear
        Same to you too
        She’s actually in the same class i attend
        And the only reason I miss school is because I want to see her
        Because i had a tough time having good friends and she was super kind and nice to me
        Thank you very much for sharing your time

        kisi ki amanat, kisi ko nhi dete…
        vada krte hai…. hr kisi ko nhi dekhte
        yu to dost honge kai… in raho me
        yu to dost honge kai… in raho me
        pr dosti ki vo had… hr kisi pe munasib
        hm nhi samajhte💕

    Well written, Shreya! Your descriptive phrasing builds the anticipation for the reader, and your closing forces them to think past accepted outcomes or thinking. And all this held in the moment of one kiss. So proud of you!

    Have you tried your hand at sonnets? I’m quite confident you would be amazing at those… I love your twists – every time. As for ‘this’ being lust – I think I know something about that. Check my story starting with #One to know what I mean. 🙂

        It’s my pleasure to listen these words. But I love to write in hindi. My english is not as great as yours. If you could understand hindi you feel my words.

        हार्दिक आभार बंधु आपका आशा करता हूँ आपको और भी अच्छी कविताओं का संग्रह अवश्य प्राप्त होगा। वैसे मेरी अंग्रेजी थोड़ी कमजोर है। 🙏
