8 Years

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 19:03 -- KalaD


His arms tightly grasped

His eyes filled with love

His smile blooms

His heart races

He lowers his head

Their lips meet quickly

Just once

A boy rushes around the corner

The mother of the child follows

The couple  breaks away quickly

The mother looks at them

Disdain on her face

"You should be ashamed"

"This is a public place"

He looks in his lovers eyes

They fill up with tears

He hold on to his boyfriend

His boyfriend of 8 years
