Butterflies in their stomachs,
Cheeks gleamed in pink hue
Lips played the game of seal and unlock
To share a bit of their life’s rue.
Heart kept tearing in the dilemma
Seeking the other’s acceptance,
Assuming their situation
to be the starkly opposite.
Inside the room they went
And through coughs, their lips unzipped
It all started talking about the weather
And after a while, the conversation clipped,
They inhaled courage inside
and gathered all their strength,
“I am not a virgin”
At the same time, both said.
For a moment, they were taken aback
by their own confession.
Then both pondered, for a while, upon
their potential mates’ fresh declaration.
“Oh! you too?” They said
in a fashion confused yet casual.
“How?”, both discussed the details
and laughed a moment later.
“You loved her a lot” she said.
“You too” he replied with comprehension,
“They were important parts of our lives.” And she replied,
“Yes, indeed, I’m glad we’re not into pretention.”
“I don’t wish to go back to her”
“Neither do I”
“But a part of me loves her”
“Because love never dies”.
“But I want you to understand
That if for eternity we’ll meet,
You don’t need to doubt my character
Trust me, I’ll never cheat.”
“Same goes from me to you
Past is past, and should remain like that too.”
Then, both said with mutual understanding,
“Together, we’ll start from a new beginning.”
“Forget about the bodies,
our souls still remain untouched.
We’ve learnt about love from experience
and are ready to focus on issues that matter a lot much.”
“By losing the virginity, one doesn’t
loses one’s human essence.
Our strengths and weaknesses define us.
Our behaviour justifies our moralistic sense.”
