What was there in those eyes; that drowned me in an ocean of uncontrollable ecstasy? 


 


What was there in those lips; that made me stare in spell bound consternation for marathon hours on the trot? 


 


What was there in those feet; that made me swoon in a bedraggled heap on the ground? 


 


What was there in those hands; that made me long for a caress that could last till eternity? 


 


What was there in that nose; that made me crave for oceans of moist breath taking me unaware in their swirl? 


 


What was there in that voice; that made me wholesomely oblivious to the passing of time? 


 


What was there in that palm; that made me see my destiny explicitly in its mystical lines? 


 


What was there in those fingers; that flooded my mouth with a taste more sweeter than the wildest of nectar? 


 


What was there in that neck; that made me feel incredibly lost even in the sedative solitude of the night? 


 


What was there in those ears; that made me dream like a prince even though I was poor? 


 


What was there in that tongue; that made me remain thirsty even under blistering heat of sun and umpteenth volcano's? 


 


What was there in those teeth; that made me perceive night and day about 


the enchantment in smile? 


 


What was there in those eyelashes; that made me hide my reflection within; even in the most tumultuous of storms? 


 


What was there in that chest; that made me go berserk every unleashing minute 


for an everlasting embrace? 


 


What was there in those nails; that made me shiver like an infant even in scorching heat of summer? 


 


What was there in that belly; that made me trip head on the mud; even while I was walking in spiked shoes? 


 


What was there in those hair; that strangulated my throat; made me gasp for air with every contraction of my heart? 


 


What was there in that blood; that made my pulse race a million times faster each time I felt it running through the veins? 


 


And what was there in that body; that propelled me to love each time I saw it; that triggered my existence till date today; and for many more generations to unfurl hereafter?
