‘Leave me alone’ she said with a smile
Thinking of a trip to the Amazon and the Nile.
Away he walked in some relief
Made his way to the coral reef.
She rode on boats of waves and rains
He walked alone in mounts and plains.
Further as she touched the banks
To many more suitors she said “No Thanks”.
He befriended men on distant lands
Clicked naked women wearing flowery bands.
As affairs blossomed, she grew in repute
As wisdom dawned, he allayed dispute.
These journeys brought them together in the rain
They promised to each other “No quest again”.
They lived and loved in the city forever
Lost in the crowds very high on fever.
Till one day when arose disbelief
Knowledge or bliss was the contention chief.
He knew of nothing he had ever felt
She had no feeling of all that belt.
Leaving the world they landed in space
Dwelt thinking and feeling of love and race.
The oxygen depleted and she had no clue
His hope had died long before he knew.
Breathless they ran and hugged in the dark
No flowers bloomed and sang no lark!
