Love Making!

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!

Boredom!

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!
