The tryst had ended
but their gazes still held..
Both were speechless,
one; breathlessly waiting
in all fairness,
wanting to take a dip
that would transport them quickly
to an abyss of ecstacy.
The other mind set in motion,
afraid to tread the path of emotions
which leads the heart to Utopia.
And then in a twinkling
the spell is broken..
Though refusal had been unwittingly said
without the longed for dip
that would have made things go deep.
Thoughts of what would have happened
had they but sipped of that
inexhaustible spring of Aphrodite
runs riotous right through the mind
like a beserk bull in a ring.
Though that moment is long gone
the mind still spins work of phantasy.
Bittersweet memories would remain
embedded in that private terrain
like fossil in a weatherworn rock.
Playing over in the mind like a tape
though that moment was aeons away..
Looking up,from the sandy shore
I could see him rise above the hilltops..
His face like that of Zeus;the god of gods.
Sleek hair,the colour of midnight
eyes,azure like the early morn’ sky
they seemed to see into my heart
and tried to drown me in its depth.
Lips with this magnetic quality
it would taste like a berry.
Shoulders and chest so good,
they made me want to lean forward.
Stomach so flat, just like a rolling board.
Lean waist that tapered to legs so gracèful like a heron’s
And the carriage of a jungle cat stalking its prey.
His physique,an absolute aphrodisiac.
He comes forward; beckoning
and like a somnabulist,I am drawn
like one under the hypnotist’s gaze,I respond.
Hair breadths’ away
I hear my name;
Only then do I realize,
that I am knee-deep in the sea
and he was a figment of my phantasy..
