The sound of his voice saw tears gushing like the river Nile,
All the while
His touch which I dream, engulfs my every being
The yearn and the lust left me paralyzed to love.
The sweet nothings and pillow talks left me with a jumble of insecurities.
His words left me pregnant with thoughts that bore questions,
His words are the ones I buried
One month from now will be the unveiling.
