Rose could never arouse
Anthophile in me,
But your rosy lips could do.
Rain could never,
Quench my thirst.
But your oozing words could do.
Music could never
Soothen my senses.
But the jingle of your anklets could do.
Yes, I am falling in love,
Like the sirimiri of love,
Finally makes me,
Surrender without inhibitions.
Liberating the last hope of night,
She wished for an ecstatic adieu.
