Garden Affair

A beautiful girl
stands there
solitary on the
terrace.
Slowly dusk blooms
around her.
Staring across the
perfumed garden
she catches his
watchful eye.
Forbidden words
shared only
through a look.
Slowly she raises
her fingertips,
pressed ever gently
to crimson lips,
and sends her
love to him.
A touch at her
side alerts her
to another's
presence.
Rosy blush
creeps into her
cheeks thankfully
masked by the
dusk.
An arm around
her bare shoulders
guides her
ever away
into a life
she does not
want and farther
from her
garden lover.
Inside
her heart breaks
into a million
tiny pieces.
