One Night Stand
It’s hard to say good bye
by Mamta Agarwal
So don’t even try.
Don’t wait in car for long
To watch me enveloped by fog.
Let the memories we have built
Warm our heart without guilt.
It had no future
We knew, so don’t brood
Don’t allow regret to fill you
With disqietitude, for these few
Hours when we made a connection
And made love with abandon,
Sharing dreams till late at night
In the dark with no lights
My head on your shoulder
And you gently stroking my hair
At times we were silent
Only sound was that of our breaths
One arm thrown across your chest
I think we knew how we felt
We both want different things from life
So there is no way we can be man and wife
I hope you don’t take it as rejection and understand
And never look back on this as one night stand.
