One Fine Day

One Fine Day

I reach the party

Freshly showered ‘n’ shaven

Suited ‘n’ booted

For me tonight’s all about business

More networking  rather than socializing

Just chit chatting, polite ‘n’ official

Lights ‘n’ camera

Loud music ‘n’ chatter

In a sea of skin

Long legs, bare backs ‘n’ off shoulders

A whiff of a perfume wafts from across the room

She makes an entrance

Dressed in a dreamy blue sari

Flattering her better than any body- con

Pristine pure skin

Body sculpted ‘n’ chiseled by the Maker

Her beauty putting every clotheshorse to shame

Making her the cynosure of all eyes

Soft brown curls frame her face ’n’ fall till her shoulders

Black kohled eyes

Blue eyeshadow on her lids

A peach stain on her lips

I spot a lone pimple on her cheek

(Yeah, I’m a man of details ‘n’ cheeky!)

The sparkle of solitaires

The jingle jangle of bangles

Pearl chains dangle down the valley of desire

Shyly clasping her clutch

Big faux baubles weigh on her slender fingers

She seems to be radiating love from every bone ‘n’ sinew

‘Coz the sight of her is taking my breathe away

Our eyes meet

I stare a minute too long

Her pretty forehead creases

Why can’t I take my eyes off her?

A sheepish smile betrays my face

She fiddles her fingers

I twiddle my thumbs

“That’s her! That’s her!”

My insides start screaming

“I recognize you

Long lost lover from another lifetime

Oh! I’m so happy to see you

It’s your lucky day!”

Shush, finger on your lips!

Stop flipping ‘n’ somersaulting!

I scold my inner Romeo

Let’s keep this a secret

Let’s think this through

Are you ready to seal the deal?

The most important of your lifetime

What if she spurns your love ‘n’ turns me away?

“Man, don’t think too much

What are you waiting for?

I’m right behind you

Just take the first step!”

As I’m still pondering

She sneaks upon me

“Hi, I’m Nikita, Do I know you?”

“Umm…”

(Fingers crossed)

Just an ordinary day

An extraordinary rendezvous

There’s a twinkle in my eye

‘N’ a spring in my step
