A Ploy

Sunlight reflected.

Off rushing river rapids.

Hearts a flutter.

Life not tepid.

Love between friends.

Flirtatious beings.

Like songbirds singing.

Frisky play,

dangerously close.

A love between friends.

Risk, filled with hope.

Hug me, please.

A moment of joy.

A love, only a ploy.

The Affair

A reluctant kiss.

Pounding heart.

Insatiable desire.

Don’t tell her.

Don’t tell him.

No one will know.


Tangled tongues.

Complexity in emotion.

A reluctant kiss.

A passionate night.

Tomorrow, friends,

once more.

An affair,

never revealed.

A love,

never fulfilled.
