Of love and lovers

Cold air touched her bare skin. They were lying on the terrace, city lights twinkling. Open naked sky, just like them. She could feel goosebumps. She murmured softly, in a slumber. Let out a content sigh and traced her fingers on his arm. He slowly opened his eyes, looked at her and smiled. Stroked her hair and pulled her closer. Kissed her hair, slowly traced his lips along hers. Pressed his lips harder, wanting her more than anything else, in that moment for all he cared, he would give up the world to have her. He reached her jaw line and then let his hands wander. She let out a gasp and clutched him, wanting him to come closer. He was just not close enough.

She was burning, his love consumed her. She wanted him, in that moment she realised that it was just them, and she did not care what the future will bring. They lived in the moment, in one another. Love was becoming something tangible. The breaths came harder now. Broken only with pounding heartbeats and slow moans; the desire that drove them crazy left them insane; the feeling that nothing will be enough, that they’ll always want each other more.

It was reaching a crescendo, she was no longer stifling her moans, she no longer had any control, he possessed her, she wanted him to possess her, to love her like she will break any moment, to love her like she’ll be in pieces otherwise. To love her like an animal. Sweat glistened on his body, dropping on her naked form. She observed as if seeing from afar, having lost all semblance of reality. She screamed, it was almost too much to bear, right then she felt like she’ll dissolve into the nothingness of pain and pleasure. And then, it was over.

The world was still. She could suddenly listen to other sounds, as if the world just came into existence. She turned, the cold floor helped cool her feverish, burning skin. She had never been this happy. He looked at her, happy she was his. Only his. And in that moment the world belonged to them, and they belonged to the world.

  1. One lost stray dog that I am, alleys have led me to lovers, hermits and the lunatics. Of all the sights that the eyes could conjure, your words have painted the raw truth that bubbles under the belly of city and the hamlet alike. This covenant that only the lovers know of. Your words drip in it. Reminds me of a memory that I never had. Hope to see you in fine print real soon:)

  2. This is a great piece of art mahi. Very well expressed. This is as pure as single malt. Just loved every bit of it. Thanks for sharing. Keep it up!

  3. You took me close to deepest darkest desires. Too many emotions leave me wordless and this beautiful piece of work is pure art, on which I should instead not comment. Loved it, Mahima.

  4. This was something like a transcending symphony. I didn’t want it to end, I just wanted to keep going, it is that subtle.
