My Heart's Desire

My fifth consecutive week winning the WoW Top Post




This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda

Write Over the Weekend theme for Feb 22, 2013 : Revolve a story around this line ‘My heart was saying “Yes” but my head was saying “No”.


***

I saw him yet again in the park
His eyes radiant in the sunshine
His hair ruffled by the breeze
He knew what was on my mind

In one look, I could tell
He would fulfill my heart's desire
His smile tightened my belly
The heat made me shiver, ice was on fire

My heart was saying Yes
But my head was saying No
I looked beside me, and sighed
My husband was signalling me to go.

I yearned for what he could give
That man in the park..
In my mind's eye I could see
Strawberry champagne, chocolate rock

He would soon be taken, if he wasn't already
Honey-sweet, fruity fresh, delicious eye-candy
Just to look at him made my mouth water
Intoxicating as whisky, wine and brandy

My husband, he'd know what I was thinking
I had to control these sinful thrusts
To my horror, he took me straight to the man
"Fulfill your hunger, quench your thirst"

I looked at him with tears in my eyes
I burst into a silent scream
But I was too far gone, too weak to resist
"Butterscotch, rum-raisin and fruit punch ice-cream"

  16. I loved it, Mixi. Your ending was great, a rude awakening from my dreams.

    Ever since before high school I, probably like all men, have been getting 'crushes.' Not with all women but certain ones. They are situations that, like your poem, give rise to some dreaming, not all lustful-surprise, surprise.

    Enjoy 'your' (first tense writer) treat. Do you have ice cream or gelato or both there?

    Oh yes, I am happily married. Yesterday Mrs. Jim and I celebrated our 40th anniversary.

      Congratulations on the big Four-oh! In these times of instant love and instant break-ups, it's heartening to hear stories of enduring relationships :)

      Cheers!
