A fleeting glance

And his face lit up with burning desire

She was afraid to look at him

lest his love wanes

Still, vibrations of their mutual longings

united them in their desire to be together alone

and so, quietly and noisily

they left the grounds where they stood

and now they are here

hidden from unwanted gazes

that threatened to take up their emotional spaces,

basking in their love

till time, place and people lose their relevance to them

as they regale in their togetherness
