As the taxi drives off...
As the taxi drives off,
she lets her hand slide towards mine.
Our fingers began to intertwine,
I laced my left arm around her waist
and pulled her closer
until our legs began to touch.
We approached our tilted heads
and held for a moment,
listening to our deep, heavy breaths
colliding and reverberating in the hollow,
narrow gap between us.
I extended my right arm,
groomed her fallen hair behind her ear
and plunged into her lips.
Our bodies bent forward and interlaced,
as if a black hole had formed
on that cavity's vacuum.
Now holding us captive,
twirling slowly into an eternal embrace.
