"One brief moment..."

It was a transient snippet of time;
A breath, a snatched hiatus.
Mere seconds,
Stolen from a lifetime.

Hands touched;
Fingers intertwining,
Thumbs stroking flesh.

A head rested 
Against a shoulder
Before, stirring, lips collided,
Tongues eagerly tasting 
Forbidden flavours,
Dangerous desire.

And, in that instant,
Adoring eyes exchanged
A thousand words of love
While breathless sighs
Sang of longed for unity.

Immune from Time’s
Unending demands,
Two souls shared
A moment of completion.

No past. No future.
No judgement.

The world held its breath 
To allow that fragile instant
Of ‘here and now’
To leave its mark
Upon their hearts and minds.
