Tete-a-Tete


Ladylike I sit beside you,
Playfully adding some sweetness.
I crave for you;
Without doubt,
You are my weakness.
Hot as a volcano,
You arouse my thirst.
Every evening we two flirt.
Addicted to you,
I can't resist you on my lips.
Shimmering and boiling,
We just click.
When you are in my hands,
Even a hectic day sounds a spree.
What else can make my day?
Than a refreshing cup of tea.

*Tete-a-Tete is a French word for a private conversation between two people. And, this conversation is between a lady and her cup of tea. A sweet dedication to all tea lovers. Cheers!

  38. Hey Saru...
    The poem's title attracted me as I lived in France for 2 years and I love the language.
    And then...oh! my addiction-TEA...was with the French language...two super things together, so beautifully expressed.

    Good one!

    By the way, who inspired what? The tea or the guy...come on, dont try to hide :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lovely! I am wondering if the poem is about the guy or the tea:P
