A Date With You


You ask me: what I expect
Well! It is just a ‘date’
While the abetting inky night
Writing down a tasteful menu
In candle light just you and I
Looking into each other’s eyes
Our faces glowing in mild halos
Amidst an expectant darkness
And screeching envious crickets
Staring at each other as if
Raring to bare our thoughts
Starting with hors d’oeuvre
Wine, up to a sweet dessert
Allowing it to mature late
Slowly, slyly, but surely
Dissolving the inhibiting clout
Fettering us for too long
To cut the ice
Cuing coquettish passes
Forcing the gluttonous hearts open
Replete with unspelled passions
By those titillating slashes
From great Eros’s stiletto
To spill out our secretive wants
And chase out the dozing dark horse
And, it all for now I thought
Leave the remnant witching hours
To the great Cupid’s verdict
