A Quarantine affair



Lovey – dovey pillow talk
or silent long engaging
eye to eye conversations
or burst of endless laughter
or your coded secret
expressions of raw passion
or your soulful songs
slowly falling like autumn flowers
in the lap of my heart
echoing in my timeless
personal space
or the deep unsaid, unspoken 
spells of silences
which makes us burn
with unknown desires
or your wide awake eyes
pleading a sleepy pair of eyes
to stay awake
through the night till morn
And yet we pacify each other
that this is just a casual chit chat
between two lonesome
in the virtual world
In the era of covid distancing
knowing well what this may be
but scared to define
and name .
