#OctPoWriMo Day Twenty Prompt: White

zero

“Wonderful”, a Pensee

White skin

beating softly

diving into your wonders

I cannot just love one of you

Unwaveringly, I love both

 

“Marry You”, a Tango

Stunning. Where does this beauty come from?

Never thought I’d love the way I love you.

Binding. These simple words cannot be undone.

All I said was I love you and that was enough.
