The Encounter

The time I met u, under the soft mellow light.
You gorgeously sat with me, your well toned arms
Elegantly placed on your cross legged laps, I rolled my eyes
Speechless, for that of your majestic charm!

I was stolen by your imposing eyes,
The sentinelling Kajal lined them so sharply, kept them tranquil.
You smiled and your chin played the role,
Giving transcendent dimension to your face, me vacillating still.

Your eyelids went down with aristocracy, and me?
Never missed a chance to run my gaze upon you,
I did see you flirting with your fringed hair bunched along one of your shoulders,
And I could feel caressing those and you.

The times i called you up, i felt thousands of butterflies
In my stomach, every chamber and every gut.
Often, your warmth hitting me, still
Frozen all over and paralyzed, me a mutt.

The sleepless nights with you being so far;
Your hum and hushing voice cut the distance short.
As intimate as it could ever be.
The fusion of your breath with mine; charismatic comfort.

The encounter would count deeply in my life, I know not
How deep, the feelings don't die but yes they subside down.
The gifted rose may be crushed but the aroma
still lingers on, but I know not how long!

I'll move on, with the entangled emotions,
I'll live the life, i'll cherish you forever.
All the promises and dreams shall chase me to search for you,
May be within someone or may be none, forever.
