Gleaming to the moon
And it’s Twilight Themed Dapper
I walked past the blocks
Humming rhythm like a rapper….
When all of a sudden
My sight caught a brunette
Sipping latte of her liking
In this incredible luncheonette….
Little did I know
It wasn’t my heart
Though I assumed it was
That got the moment strike ‘apart’….
And scribe’ close enough’
Next to ‘that too, to her’
But as I was about to script ‘Hello’
Something escalated me away from her….
In the next thing that followed
I found myself seated
On a table for one
Though in a manner, I felt mistreated….
But who was I to say
Since ‘To whom should I say’
In it’s own kind of way….
“Pour me your best wine
Bring Paris to me
But don’t forget the Russian style
‘service a la russe’…. ”
The maitre d’hotel, like me
Was shocked to his core
Which and when I heard from my belly
” I need more…. ”
The sleeping beast, I bet
Was well awake by now
Who knew to entice my brain better than me
Whenever it smelled food or cacao….
” Aye mate”, it kept boasting
“In appetisers, bring me some oysters
Let them be plain and perfectly seasoned
With dab of Wasabi enhancing the flavours….”
“Then bring the Barley soup
Oh, do skip the scone
Then do rush to garnish thy Salmon
Without breaking any table or a bone…. ”
Scared that the waiter was
He ran for the chef at once
And spooned out the ordered dishes
Which I gobbled one by one all at once….
The voice from my belly made it’s way again
” Aye mate, now for the main course
How about some boiled rice
Garnished with some chateau potatoes…. ”
” Once done with it
Don’t bother about any facial expression
Just serve me the best of your desserts
With peaches in chartreuse jelly, you know, just for fun…. ”
The species of spices
Along with the delicacies of all sizes
Helped my beast find it’s beauty
Which, for me, opened up the box of surprises….
Comprising my enchanted mind
And a delighted soul
Also a belly in crisis
Thereby picturing me as an ‘about to burst’ black hole….
And even though I didn’t get a chance
To tell a Tale to that sweetheart
I was still gloating for the beast in my belly
As it’s act only ended up pouring love in my heart….
