A Tryst

Geetika Saini

Grey t-shirts and black pajamas
Soft pillows and bed disheveled hair
Sleepy eyes and sunlight streaming in

Gleeful face
Happy to wake up next to you
Glowing in your morning glory
In our favorite position
Snuggled in duvets

If wishes were horses
Would lie in all-day
Lying face to face
Side by side
Ear to ear
Eye to eye
Winking
Twitching
Teasing
Tempting
Biting lips
Kissing
Smiling
Sharing
An intimate tete-a-tete
Our private rendezvous

“So, time for a quickie?
Or else join me in the shower”

Tring! Tring!

‘Sorry…boss calling
Make do with a flying kiss.’

Lovers
On a video call
With a phone in between
Holding back cases
Touching each other
Via touchscreen
