Drenched in countless emotions, 
This notorious heart pays no heed.
He works out like always, 
And, I count his sweat beads.
Hand sculpted Greek God,
Arrests my vivacious soul.
Swelled out words on his arm,
Take my senses on an alluring stroll.
I live on my addiction,
Stealing moments for my hungry eyes.
Romancing in my mind,
Love watching him when he exercise.
Steaming up in my body,
Images intensifying this mad race.
Unaware of my mystical passion, 
He is tying his shoe lace...


  1. What a great poetry for physical workout! Each word is a gem.. you make me crave for exercise!!

  2. Hmmm..Ahem. Very nice :)
    I like the subtle use of the mischievous undertone in this poem.

    Daniel's photo just adds more charm to your poem :)

  3. Ha ha ha.. They should put this up in a gym and men will workout more. :P

    Lovely poem Saru.

  4. Nice rhythmic rhyming - sings a romantic Rap.Luv it

  5. waahhow:)) what an anti-climax:)) really loved the way you built up the raw emotions and then suddenly the last line reads - he is tying his shoe lace:P
    Reminded me of someone, whose simple action of mixing rice and dal while having lunch, the shape her fingers took, the way she made a dollop and fed herself, really created 'mystical passions' in me of which she was blissuflly unaware;)
    I didnt even have to read the image courtesy line, i knew this was a Joshi photo:))

  6. :D Joshi MUST read this.....only you can do this Saru....And last line nailed it....shoosh I miss gym now :( Get to see all the macho men hihihi....This one is a naughty poem :D

  7. Brilliant way of putting it and extremely beautiful(to put it simply)!
    "I live on my addiction.
    Stealing moments for my hungry eyes."...lovely! And all the more "interesting"! One of my favorite pieces of yours! And the rhymes rocked! Love and regards dear:)

  8. PERFECTO...!! :D

    Steaming up in my body,
    Images intensifying this mad race.
    Unaware of my mystical passion,
    He is tying his shoe lace...

    lol...were you the one spying on me this morning during my workout?
    Seriously, love the sensual undertone. You ended it great.
    Nice one!
    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks also for visiting. I'm sorry you did not get a chance to participate in the Party. To try & incorporate 27 different styles was no easy task, but I'm very happy with the final poem. I've already had a request from several of the party-goers & a few non-party people to do another event. I may consider holding another party in the future. I'll be sure to let you know if/when it happens. Thanks for the interest.

  77. @Sujatha Sathya- Who cares? We live in our own world where we have 'conversations' in 'words'...:)
