While Today - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

When she wasn't there in my life; my hands were just
hands; painstakingly staggering in flagrant
incoherence to engross themselves with the mundane
activities of routine life,
While today; they artistically evolved a civilization
of bountiful newness; sketching the unbelievable
vividness of this colossal Universe even on barren
bits of lackluster mud; as her magically unflinching
body nestled on my chest
When she wasn't there in my life; my feet were just
feet; vengefully cribbing to clamber even a single
step; feeling like a fretfully unbearable mountain of
stones and horrendously debilitating thorns,
While today; they euphorically surged past the
ultimate epitomes of benign victory; triumphantly
trampled even the most evanescent trace of evil on
this planet; as her innocuously celestial eyes
interlocked themselves impregnably with mine….

When she wasn't there in my life; my lips were just
lips; inanely muttering lackadaisical monosyllables;
to procure quintessential elements of life,
While today; they tirelessly sung the songs of
everlastingly enchanting togetherness; majestically
chanted the essence of Immortally spell binding love
and camaraderie to the most fathomless quarters of
this planet; as her altruistically humanitarian
shadow; intrepidly circumscribed me from all sides….
When she wasn't there in my life; my blood was just
blood; congenitally enriched with poignantly crimson
shades of scarlet; but metamorphosing more and more
rampantly into an amorphous coffin of tears; bearing
the whiplash of the truculently conventional society,
While today; it became an untamed inferno of
indomitable righteousness; invincibly towering above
every other thing on this gigantic Universe; as the
egalitarian fragrance of her impeccable soul;
unassailably wafted into my conscience….
When she wasn't there in my life; my brain was just
brain; insidiously indulging in all nefarious
shortcuts to earn indispensable livelihood;
wholesomely succumbing to the satanically bombarding
While today; it spell bindingly fantasized to the most
insuperably regal limits; beautifully assimilating
every trace of humanity and goodness on this limitless
globe; as her voluptuously enamoring hair surreally
tantalized my naked nape….
When she wasn't there in my life; my eyes were just
eyes; dreadfully sullen and morose every unfurling
minute of the day; plunging themselves into a
cadaverously obfuscated and disparagingly disoriented
blur; with the unraveling of midnight,
While today; they vivaciously danced like the
fireballs of immaculately untamed mischief;
unceasingly flowed with empathy for all of my
synergistic kind; as her Omnipotently mesmerizing
voice conquered even the most emaciated pore of my
When she wasn't there in my life; my flesh was just
flesh; without even the most ethereally infidel of
desire; disdainfully rotting like ghoulishly
indescribable feces emanating from the pigs hindside,
While today; it incredulously catapulted beyond the
walls of seventh heaven and paradise at the crack of
tantalizing dawn; as her seductively rubicund fingers;
traced very last impoverished bone down my spine…..
When she wasn't there in my life; my ears were just
ears; abjectly numbing themselves in sadness and
profanity; even as the most thunderous of apocalypses
resonated cannibalistically on this boundless planet,
While today; they philanthropically unfurled to even
the slightest bereavement of living kind; running
continents apart to the cries of the haplessly
decrepit; as her unconquerably ebullient spirit
lingered by my diminutive side….
When she wasn't there in my life; my breath was just
breath; pathetically slavering and slithering like a
treacherously rabid dog; to carry on till the time it
was destined on this endlessly royal earth,
While today; it transformed into the cosmos of
perennially ecstatic and undefeatable life; as her
virtue of eternal truthfulness and religion of
humanity; kissed me from head till the last nail of my
And when she wasn't there in my life; my heart was
just heart; mechanically pumping blood to every cranny
of my torturously depleted countenance; as if it were
the most despairingly acrimonious activity on this
eclectic planet,
While today; it solely and effulgently coruscated with
the beats of Immortally unshakable love; as her mantra
of selflessly godly existence; transcended over even
the most obsolete element of my mission and life.
