what was there in that body


What was there in those eyes; that drowned me in an
ocean of uncontrollable ecstasy?
What was there in those lips; that made me stare in
spell bound consternation for marathon hours on the
trot?
What was there in those feet; that made me swoon in a
bedraggled heap on the ground?
What was there in those hands; that made me long for a
caress that could last till eternity?
What was there in that nose; that made me crave for
oceans of moist breath taking me unaware in their
swirl?
What was there in that voice; that made me wholesomely
oblivious to the passing of time?
What was there in that palm; that made me see my
destiny explicitly in its mystical lines?
What was there in those fingers; that flooded my mouth
with a taste more sweeter than the wildest of nectar?
What was there in that neck; that made me feel
incredibly lost even in the sedative solitude of the
night?
What was there in those ears; that made me dream like
a prince even though I was poor?
What was there in that tongue; that made me remain
thirsty even under blistering heat of sun and
umpteenth volcano's?
What was there in those teeth; that made me perceive
night and day about the enchantment in smile?
What was there in those eyelashes; that made me hide
my reflection within; even in the most tumultuous of
storms?
What was there in that chest; that made me go berserk
every unleashing minute for an everlasting embrace?
What was there in those nails; that made me shiver
like an infant even in scorching heat of summer?
What was there in that belly; that made me trip head
on the mud; even while I was walking in spiked shoes?
What was there in those hair; that strangulated my
throat; made me gasp for air with every contraction of
my heart?
What was there in that blood; that made my pulse race
a million times faster each time I felt it running
through the veins?
And what was there in that body; that propelled me to
love each time I saw it; that triggered my existence
till date today; and for many more generations to
unfurl hereafter?
