The Kiss (#AtoZChallenge)

This is my 9th attempt at the month-long blogging challenge, Blogging from A to Z. I’ve completed it 5 times so far. My theme this year is 7 Sentence Fiction, and the word I’m using for K is Kiss.

The Kiss

The fragrance of the roses entered the room before he did, holding the bouquet in his hand.

“Happy anniversary, my love,” he whispered, leaning into me from behind and kissing me on the cheek, then handing me the bouquet.

“Had a good day?”

“Quite busy, actually. The clients had come to see the project outputs, and I was at that meeting all day,” he replied with a sigh, sitting down beside me.

I had kept the coffee ready, like always, and he took the cup and sipped slowly.

“One last coffee,” I thought to myself, remembering how he had been kissing his colleague passionately on the lips when I had gone to his office to surprise him earlier in the afternoon.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
