Halloween Love Story
We outdid everything, in banter
There were lanterns inside pumpkin faces,
The smiley visages could do no wrong
As we became the afterthought before we knew
What had transpired…
Almost like a flash of instant lightning.
You and I, had scored each other.
Jack O Lantern had claimed his Jill.
The rain toils, through the eve
Intermittent, the forecasts tell us all.
Two lovers caught in rain traps
Wait under an umbrella at a bus stop
There is nothing as loose as the wind
Blowing through their faces
Their hair flow with the budding wind
Just like the umbrella, difficult to control.
Moisture gathers drop by drop,
On her cotton covered breasts,
Just like lust had dewed on his lips.
Nip was just overstating the obvious.
Desire could not have been more transparent,
Nor clinically overwrought.
I was just as visible
As what my skin portrayed
And just as thin, just as invisible as,
Who I was, and every time
I closed into to do the “job”
I looked at the bathroom sign
I would rush in to where the frock was,
And every time, ending up searching,
For a cubicle, to make an invisible
Organ count, letting out, the flow through,
Of what was just as excretory,
As a disposable flaccid faucet,
That was only a contrast for now,
And perhaps a zombie – sometime soon.
In that picture-perfect life
Of what it was to know
From the early years, that
You were just a shadow dweller
Lurking behind, never in front,
And in that chemistry between similar poles
You found, how to bloom in a meadow,
In a color few possessed, and yet
You made it your own.
And spring was ushered in
Leaving behind a spring roll, under the covers,
The feet and head poking out,
And spring was just
Like the wind blowing through
Eloping forever, your god-run kite
