By Jagruti Verma
your hand would clutch the handlebar tight
eyes twinkling at the thought of mine
your bag would sling over your shoulders
hiding away groceries I listed in the morning
your back would lean against the hard metal
resting as you laugh over my recent rant
your sweat would spill all over your shirt
forcing my perfume to come undone
your feet would find a way home
tracing steps from when we could love
