I Gave My Word…

…to love…not just always, but worse, all ways!

So allow …

Delirious Collision

Her soft pink fingers rose
Toward my lipstick hued
Fast approaching breathless
Partially open mouth!

We stood still… the only movement now

Why This Kolaveri? : Part 4 [Finale]

Dhanush couldn't forgive himself for the destruction he had brought up on Sruthi. What if I hadn't talked to her on the flight that day? What if I hadn't given her my email address? The guilt was a constant companion and it consumed him.
