When whiff of cologne,

And cigarettes

Precedes his husky tone.


The embrace,

Feeling awkward

Affords a comfort unknown.


Moment of silence,

Broken only

By gasps of bated breath.


Lipstick and stubble,

Hesitant hands

Guiding a nervous kiss.


Merge for one brief moment

As lovers, then

In opposite directions fade.
