Living In his (He)art

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
He could stare at her
For hours together.
Feel her hair on his face
Source
From dawn till sunset.
Make her feel like a princess
Till time lasted...


Alas! She never,
Existed in flesh.

She was a painting
Which he had made-
Lifeless.

Yet the strokes of brush
Had given her place
In his heart's palace...





**This is my 55 word poem for Write Festival - Day 6 - 55 Words.
