Really Close- #AmWriting

“If you’ve got a minute, I need your feedback, darling.”

“Sure, Jim, tell me more,” she said, her eyes sparkling.

“This is just something I call ‘Close to My Heart’.”

With you by my side, my every task becomes easy.

As you toil away tirelessly, my love for you grows

Watching you furtively, taking every second breath, I sigh gladly.

Can I be so bold as to assume you care?

Without you, I must say, my world would be bare.

Dora’s eyes glistened, as she said, ‘That was beautiful, Jim.’

“It’s what the heart says to the lungs”, beamed Jim.

  1. Amazingly crafted Shailaja. I loved the last line a lot. And you have completed 10 words in 10 sentences which is totally superb. Thanks for getting 10/10 Tuesdays kickstarted. Kudos to u.

  2. It’s so much fun, Shailaja, to create a message that works on different levels 🙂 One word gives it a twist and changes the meaning, causing us to reread and think again and beyond. Thank you, dear for the adventure! HUGS <3
