A Yes In That No - Poem by Sumeet Mukherjee

No.105, Dated: 14-June-09
A YES in that NO

When you lie down on the bed and you try to sleep
When you feel you are all alone and dreams start to creep
You take the quilt, till it just bares your waist
You tend to ignore, probably in that haste

A hush of the breeze when blows through your face
You clinch your fist and the quilt you embrace
A slight movement in your lips as if you know I’m there
Those fluttering of your eyelids, a sight so rare

When you lie down like this in a state of trance
The luckiest being the breeze that can take the chance
It rustles through your neck & hisses down the spine
You shiver with that sense, a touch so divine

Clinching on the quilt you embrace your body close
The fragrance of the musk, or was it jasmine or the rose
With the smell of the love, your breadth gains the pace
With folded hands on your bosom, the heartbeat starts to race

You deny the touch of the breeze and tend to turn to the left
Your midriff tends to expose and visible through the cleft
Now you can’t take it anymore and turn to the right
And losing the quilt, oh what a memorable sight

You know you are in love, still deny the all known fact
Deny the breeze that touches you and tries to interact
That breeze is me and nobody else
To my face you always say a NO
And when you are fast asleep
Why could I hear a YES in that NO?

    Clinching the quilt
    Like in state of trance
    The fragrance was musk
    No it was jasmine and rose
    The smell of love
    Dancing with rustle of breeze
    Just to carress my face
    With that answer to hear
    Whether it was a yes or no
    lovely write dear Sumeet
    your took my breath away
    a tenner from meeeeeeeee anjuuuuuuu

    gets the whole not idea...mood. mood and feeling of a yes in a no.
    our desires...up to snuff stuff, here.
    i wonder at the woman's reasons.
    itchy second line in second phrase. because you just laid it at the waist...i dont know. is it clench, or is there a word clinch?
