Crush

From the moment I saw you, I knew. I do not know, what I knew, but I knew it. You were standing outside the doors of the library, on your phone, arguing with someone.

Before Dawn

The look on her eyes was unmistakable. Betrayal and disappointment shaded her perfect features. Her voice cracked when she told me. Her throat tight, tears trying not to fall, she was strangely calm.

Whispers

Whispers spoken after 3 a.m. Secrets shared in the gleam of the moon. The tender kiss of your lips on my shoulder. The feather-light touch of your fingertips on my thigh. I wish we could stay like this Forever. But I’ll take this celebration of two bodies binding, till the dawn. -Kim V. Poetry
