Lovers outside

He peered through,

the dust infested curtain.

He recoiled,  coughed,

And resumed.

He focused his sluggish eyes,

To a couple of youth.

They approached each other,

From land to sea; they touched.

A kiss, a simple love;

A childish romance.

A tear trickled down the man’s,

dried skin.

Moments past,

He forgot,

The lovers outside.
