TITLED LOVE

Titled Love

” TITLED LOVE “ He whispered in my mind,The words I longed forWhen I glanced at him,Through the lines he clothed I got soundly exposed,To the feelings I cravedWhen I touched him,On the weary pages he owned He held me like a feather,So weightless, set to flyAs I flipped to the last page,Of the book …
