My Heart Relied On - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

The tree relied overwhelmingly on soil; those trapped
granules of spell binding moisture; to make it
bountifully blossom towards the Kingly Sun,
The tongue relied inevitably on slippery saliva;
basked in the glory of voluptuous softness for times
immemorial; as it pursed itself passionately on the
scarlet lips,
The ocean relied insurmountably on its undulating
festoon of ravishing waves; the tantalizing globules
of wild salt incarcerated within; which propelled it
to swirl in uninhibited frenzy,
The watch relied indispensably on its pair of slender
needles; to indefatigably traverse round the clock;
portray explicit shades of accurate time,
The eyeball relied inevitably on its lids; the
rejuvenating blankets of tears they oozed; with
poignant intensity every unfurling second,
The pencil relied tumultuously on its handsomely
bonded lead; to emboss boundless lines of exquisite
literature; deluge the surface of barren paper with
exotic calligraphy,
The dog relied profusely on its tail; to portray its
flurry of candid emotions; the state of being which it
was blatantly circumvented with,
The envelope relied irrevocably on its set of
contemporary stamps; the meticulous strings of
denomination riveted on its body; that transported it
at swashbuckling speeds to far and distant across the
The mountain relied intransigently on its towering
summits; which ensured that it leapt in vivacious
glory towards azure bits of golden sky; majestically
loomed large above everything else in vicinity,
The whale relied incorrigibly on its battalion of
pugnacious jaws; which bestowed upon it the power to
rip apart the most mightiest of entities into
inconspicuous bits of pulverized chowder,
The boat relied profoundly on its twin set of oars; to
dexterously maneuver it like a price even in the most
ominously turbulent of storm,
The lips relied compassionately on a gregarious smile;
the ingratiating aura which it imparted to their
pathetically parched demeanor,
The spider relied unsurpassably on silken strands of
its velvety web; running to its hearts content across
the labyrinth of threads without the slightest of
shame or respite,
The peacock relied unrelentingly on droplets of
sparkling rain; the heavenly water which cascaded from
the sky; evoking it to spread its oligarchic feathers
into a royal bloom and dance,
The arms relied incomprehensibly on bulging bits of
muscle; to impregnate in them the power to doughtily
fight; the power to audaciously survive,
The brain relied unfathomably on memory; those
nostalgic reminisces of the past; which triggered it
to gain unstoppable momentum and surge forward with
ecstatic reflections lingering enchantingly for times,
The diamond relied tirelessly on shine; that queenly
glint which made it the unprecedented darling of all
The body relied perpetually on tangible breath; which
instilled in it the tenacity to valiantly fight for
its rights; and blissfully survive,
And my heart relied solely on immortal love; the
omnipotent essence of which made it passionately throb
even centuries after veritable death.
