Veins tremble Blood rushes To the heart And shiver Rolls down The spine. You lie basking In the warmth That has swamped Your body And the soft touch Cuddles your soul And you pine for more!
The pall of gloom The unheard cries The logic and Counter logic The premise. The Debate. The claims And the accusations Merging and demerging Into a glowing therapy That cures the mind Taking away the numbness The appalling boredom Of time And gives it a glow Of a firefly that Twinkles in the bushes At the dead of night!
