The Letter Never Recieved - Poem by Abdul Wahab

When I was a young kid and prancing like colts
Age was about inexperienced thirteen only
For the first time felt an intense urge
To write a letter to a cute young girl
Two years younger than my age
Telling her that now I wish I should get a baby
Whom I could adopt first
And propose my love later or vice versa
Who I could nourish first and marry later
Who I wash and do her hair
Rub her legs, massage her body
Polish her nails and buckle her shoes
Drink her a glass of hot milk before I say good night
Such was my desire, such was my wish
I did not expose anything except my pure longing
I was too honest and my intention was truly holy
I never knew this could bring me scandal
And break my heart after her refusal
To receive my neatly written letter let alone my proposal
Till date I could not get my fractured heart mended
And the shock I got still I am not able to absorb
Frequently I lean at a wall or pole and think
Did she doubt me? Or she took my move for lust?
Did I do something awkward,
Or who i loved most
Lost me for the misunderstanding of somebody else?
I read this unaccepted letter again and again
I did not find anything wrong in it yet, I am confused.
