Nooks and crannies

So we were lying on hopefully-washed-hotel-sheets. Separate sheets of used white. The space inside one feels too lonely. So I crawl into the barely enough of the other. The shifted warmth of a body that moved aside to make space for me, the sunken hollow of the bed that becomes ready to now contain my tired body.

I slept well….Our fingers bridging gaps and forming almost a prayer.

Whats the exact emotion attached to it? Is it an acceptance, rejection or just indifference that u try to describe?

Abinash: A little of all the above. Mainly- its just descriptive a piece.

We will let it pass this time Poornima :)

Translations somehow has the quality of destroying the feel of any piece :( I am too bad with words so will not even dare to attempt ...

Accept my appologies
