In a moment

By Bhavya Sinha

In a moment of you
Brisk yet breathing,
I ask:
Why , when , how and such interjections 
I hurl , slow.
You speak low ,
Asking if I need some wine.
In a moment of me,
Prolonged and living 
I say:
I do need intoxications 
To blame my words on
And you ,
To question me 
When I speak sane.
In a moment of you,
Brisk and fading
I panic :
What is it that I do?
What is it that appeals to you ?
You lean , Oh don't. 
I don't want memories 
of promising not so sober eyes.
In a moment of me
Prolonged and speaking 
I try:
Leaning in too,
Kissing , staring.
I can't ill afford to not see
For I'll pen it down someday.
In a moment of you
Brisk and vague
I capture:
Feeling your skin , 
breath and lips
Your lashes brushing against my cheeks
Shadowing / Foreshadowing. 
In a moment of me 
Prolonged and inked
I stay:
My interjections answered 
Never in words 
In wine,kisses and not so sober 
promising acts.
