Once mine…

by Wozir Shehzanah (14)

In every vein of mine there’s love for you
My breath is screaming for you
My arms yearning for your touch.
My eyes dying to see you,
My ears want your sweet words.
Love me one more time,
Prolong me in your love,
Burning in your love,
Save me.
I can feel that pricking sensation inside me,
Those warm tears rolling down my cheeks.
Maybe it’s too late.
You are so close to her.
In every thought of yours, she resides
In every kiss, there’s passion
You are drowned in her love.
Once mine…
Now hers.
