She craved Spring, Forever…


Soon, this clime would crawl from Pink to Orange, and then, Red,

Into the lustrous arms of the sky’s flower,

Chained to its torturous bed,

For now, it was holding on to the tail of Spring,

The Sun showered as much romance, as it could bring,

It was His month to date the gorgeous Earth,

His time to flirt with a kiss, from the start,

In tender foreplay, sink her intoxicated,

Have her indulged, melt her heart,

For now, only her soil, her beauty shall be courted,

Her wit shall not be judged,

Her trees would be caressed,

Their charm and appeal lit and praised,

Shy, they would sway and bend,

From their naughty suitor, bashful at his ways,

That they enjoyed failing to mend,

For their leaves to feast, and cherish spicy,

His rays have been making them feel pricy,

Wooing them with his rich gifts,

Fecund hours of sweet photosynthesis,

For now, He was her boyfriend,

He would continue to impress,

Tend to her scars from wintery nags,

Nurse her with tepid ray-bags,

Vaporize away her distress,

Still days for the Sun to grow into a husband,

When love shall disappear,

Left will be only memories of spring’s romance in the air,

Enough of wooing the Earth, she’s already netted,

Taken for granted now, owned and petted,

Awaiting her is a real bummer,

The moment she ties the knot amidst blessings from Summer,

She’ll soon be spent, scorched and razed to the ground,

Her soul shall get used to it, she’ll though understand,

Post-marriage, fresh feelings are worn-out,

The same pink love is seldom found,

She would better serve Him for the day,

Put up with the brunt of His fiery grunt,

Digest whatever he dried up without a rebellious stunt,

Dispose all that he baked till decay,

And, wait for dusk to stretch, and unwind,

Tear-eyed, roll back into memories nigh, with a short rewind…
