Its not often that I tempt others,
And you in particular,
But I have always seen it in your eyes,
That look of longing,
Oh! The way your eyes glisten,
It’s so obvious that you are tempted,
Yet you put on the mask of restraint….
Restraint,meant for the world’s eyes.
And Who can know the mask better than me,
Me, who used it all too often, earlier,
Only now , to give in to temptation,
Anytime and everytime…..
And reach heaven each time I do
And so I tempt you to heaven,
And hand over the piece of Kaju sweet,
That I had carefully split into two,
And urge you to eat it…
And smile as I see a reflection,
Of my own satisfied smile,
As I chew on my favourite piece of sweet!
