Whisky in Oval Glass


Oval glass
Like your waistline
Touches my fingers

Whisky in it
Pretty hard
Soften with
Swing ice cubes
Glitters with cold

Sipping by lips
Like your tits
Taste in love
Fuddled feelings
Slowly lie down

Your glance
Being an image in it
Concavely looks at
While filling up
With another ice cube

Desire reminds
Like talking your eyes
In a short time
Empty glass
Looks at me

In a moment
I stand up
And go for a cigarette.

    Oval glass
    Like your waistline
    Touches my fingers
    -holding a whiskey glass is like holding a pretty waistline.Both are highly intoxicant
    Whisky in it
    Pretty hard
    Soften with
    Swing ice cubes
    -nice lines How about other intoxicant? Lips for cubes?
    Your poem will tempt even a teetotaler. Nice poem. Best wishes Uday

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
