Hidden with dense interpretations
Left to his mind’s contemplation
Her mysterious expressions
Stir his insides

A momentary pause
From the routine
Letting herself wander
Perhaps, in the world of her dreams

Those tiny little curves
Find him in a wonder
As she quietly saunters
Enjoying his unperturbed attention

A quick gaze and half a smile,
And his heart is so set to aflutter
He is amazed at the tricks
She mysteriously plays on his mind

Riding his curiosity
With her innocence
Piercing his senses
Desperation dripping

He wants more of it
And also an end to it

The sweet torture
The pleasant affliction
She casts on him

Goading him
To sweep her off her feet
Cradle her in his arms
Kiss her, Caress her

Unravel the mystery
That she is

  1. I really like your words as well as presentation. Your work is totally aesthetic in all three ways — the thought, the composition i.e. words/poetry, and the way of posting/publishing it. Every time we visit these pages, there is always some takeaway. Just wanted to mention this 🙂


    1. You’ve added sparkles to my morning, Amit. I strongly believe, your blog must show the kind of person you are and it took real efforts to get everything aligned to my taste.
      As for the writing – I just write from the heart.
      It delights me to know my words appeal to your senses; what else can a writer ask for! 😉

    1. Thanks, J. This was one of the pieces I wrote based on an incident I conjured up in my mind. Teasing and seductive, I so enjoyed writing it. Also, it took the shortest span of time to write.
