To Thine Own Self Be True

She looked about furtively
Pulled her coat tighter and entered
He was waiting at the end of the room
She was crying for the first time in days
But his serene smile gave her strength
Even as the blood caked on his wrist flaked off
There was no need for words
They were instantly one


She left discreetly, an hour later
Allowing herself the luxury of a faint smile
Before donning her trademark frown along with her coat
She couldn’t risk anyone seeing her
Self-preservation was her forte
And if seen, she had no answer to

What’s an atheist doing in church?

    You seem to have a bunch of (older) blogs on Blogspot. You probably want to leave a link from those sites to this one.

    @ Shantanu: There is a link on each of them. It’s the last (and topmost post) on each one.
