Oblivious of the Wet

Image: Courtesy of Tess' Mag

There they are oblivious of the wet
Resolute in not wanting to regret
Clasped in the entanglements of love
A panacea of pain failing to observe

Sweetness belie feelings less of trivia
Turbulent in thoughts but standing on air
Tugging at the cold they don’t deserve
Let loose emotions that hazardous

Exudes warmness having to let
Can man incessant of feelings of guilt?
Obliquely avoiding words of despair
Headstrong pushing seemingly unfair

Twinkling eyes of the lady a respite
Not revealing the dumbness of plight
Softening the savage breast of the ardor
Kissing in the rain is an obvious splendor
