Just A Kiss - Poem by ANJALI KAKATI

Hold me close
So close.
My bosom
Heaves breathlessly
Against the thuds of your heart.
The nape of my neck,
For your grip
Holds it
A cage of feathers,
and locked lie
our gazes,
your breath
mirroring mine.
My lips swollen,
Your taste a bitter sweet
Lingering in my mouth
Way past the moonless night.
Your tongue igniting
The deepest of my desires
And in cold fire
Burns "you" and "me"
Into ashes of" us".
My nape,
Still immobile,
In that feather grip
Of your hands
And all you asked for was
"A kiss."
