A Guide For Boys In Love


You are sitting on the bank of a lake,
Engaged in fishing and smoking with silence,
You are not interested in a particular fish,
Depending entirely on your fate for the day.

The fish may be beautiful or may be ugly,
A friend of your system or harmful for it,
It may suit to your taste,
Or just a food, for your hunger, so wild.

You are hungry and thirsty,
Just need a fish,
Being called by instinct.
Whether moral or immoral.

Bring your ears a little closer to my mouth,
Hunger of the girls are more intense,
But they know it well,
They may fish a snake.
What is inside the lake,
You are completely unaware,

(An immediate response to Yash Shinde's request)

    An intense, deep write and obviously holds truth in its obscure verses....
    'If I am not wrong, fish is compared to a girl........If I am right, then surely, we 'Boys' surely want a girl for us, not really to soothe our heart but to satisfy our temptation.............
    A realistic write Uncle! .........and not to miss, hats off to your speed....... (Report) Reply

And a wide realm of wild reality,
