I Didn'T Need Breath To Live - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

I didn't need blazing fires; as I had her flesh in
intimate contact to ignite my yearning desires,
I didn't need the turbulent ocean; as I had the river
of her ecstatic tears cascading down my neck,
I didn't need the poignantly smelling lotus; as I had
her luscious lips to kiss unrelentingly and feast
I didn't need mesmerizing sights of the world viewing
through my binoculars; as I found all beauty and
fantasy embedded in her curled eyelashes,
I didn't need water to drink; as the last drop of my
thirst was quenched with her mere caress,
I didn't need a spurious sequence of laughter; as her
innocuous gestures when she played; made me have the
smile of my life,
I didn't need dreams to inundate my mind; as my
ultimate reservoir of imagination lay encapsulated in
her hands,
I didn't need food to eat; as the profound empathy in
her expressions made me entirely oblivious to both
morning and night,
I didn't need enchanting sounds; as the melody in her
voice pacified infinite infernos exploding in my mind,
I didn't need time to be acquainted with; as the
enamouring complexion of her lids had cast a mystical
spell on my life,
I didn't need brilliant sunlight to shimmer across my
face; as I had the austere rays emanating from her
persona to enlighten my darkness,
I didn't need a couch impregnated with pure gold to
sleep upon; as I had the moistness in her lap to
succumb to an everlasting slumber,
I didn't need salubrious vitamins to resurrect my
shattered senses; as I had the tenacity of her love to
guide me through every step I took,
I didn't need valleys laden with blossoming flowers to
rekindle my soul; as I had the enigmatic passageway
down her throat to stare at in open mouthed
astonishment; till eternity,
I didn't need trees with dense foliage to sequester me
from the sweltering heat; as I had her fascinating
shadow; to scrape out every bit of fatigue from my
tired bones,
I didn't need exotic perfumes extracted from a
mountain of musk; as I had her sweat to inhale; which
sent me right back into my innocent childhood,
I didn't need magicians to decipher my future and
fate; as I clearly saw my destiny prominently in the
lines of her soft palms,
I didn't need intoxicating cans of beer; as the
sensuousness of her body stimulated my mind more than
a barrel of alcohol,
And I didn't need breath to exist; as the bond of her
romance had ensured that I would live beyond time;
immortalize the essence of sharing for boundless
decades to come.
