Hair waxed and shiny
Beard well kept,
With a genuine smile he approached to woo me.
I was in my pjs,
With my hair a mess of unkept red curls.
Smelling of the strawberry lotion I caressed on my skin,
I felt natural and at ease.
We exchanged numbers,
We shared likes.
We stalked each other’s online profiles,
And then he texted me a hi.
Trodden and scared of the love I had known,
My sweaty fingers ignored to reply him smooth.
He sent me words of new hopes and dreams,
And a comforting promise to be More.
And I melted!
Cracked the shield that blocked emotions,
I smiled and blushed and felt warm once again.
For those were some lines to think about,
Special enough to take a screenshot of…
And keep them safe in my secret file.
