When I drank water in a glass of composite mud; the liquid tasted 


ravishing; with my reflection wavering erratically in it, 


However it contained tinges of dissolved sand; and was a trifle salty


for my liking.


 


When I drank water in a glass of deplorable copper; the liquid appeared


blurred in the prevailing darkness, 


And when I sipped it; it had a stale odor of the rusty surface it had adhered to for many hours.


 


When I drank water in a glass of pure bamboo; the liquid looked glistening and


mesmerizing under the sun, 


Although even after consuming it completely; I still felt that my bowels were


yet famished and incorrigibly demanded more.


 


When I drank water in a glass of yellow molded gold; the liquid inside displayed a scintillating shine; dazzling brilliantly in the most sequestered of room, 


However it miserably floundered to pacify my thirst; as I was heavily circumspect in devouring the costly water.


 


When I drank water in a glass of hardened plastic; the liquid seemed to be


overwhelming still without the slightest of ripple, 


But the tangy flavor was blatantly absent; and I didn't relish one sip of what


I had just swallowed.


 


When I drank water in a glass of bombastic diamonds; the liquid looked as if


shimmering profusely under the moon, 


Although an uncanny feeling enveloped my stomach; a feeling as if I had


Eaten the glittering diamonds.


 


When I drank water in a glass of pencil lead; the liquid inside looked obnoxiously black; readily acquiring the color of its vessel, 


And I felt like puking it out with ferocious intensity; after having dubiously


gulped it.


 


When I drank water in a glass of broad green leaf; the liquid inside resembled


the perennial pastures sprawling over the valley, 


But alongwith it there entered a fleet of invisible insects in my throat; and


I shivered inadvertently envisaging the aftermath of disease.


 


When I drank water in a glass of heavy stone; the liquid pretty normal to


drink, 


However lifting the glass proved to be a bit cumbersome; and I felt a


bit perturbed by the flimsy effort.


 


And eventually when I drank water in the 'GLASS OF OUR LOVE'; blending


it with a concoction of her heavenly tears, 


The water tasted as sweet as never before; as impeccable as sacrosanct god; as exotic as the gyrating fairies in the sky; and it instantly put me into an inevitable slumber.
