I felt this sudden thirst…

My mouth grew dry...

Filled my glass with water

And drank it all up...

But to my surprise...

My thirst was not satisfied….

Not even close...

3 glasses after...

And yet my mouth still parched...

No trace of water came down my throat...

My lips untouched

Few cubes of ice I added

And a glass almost full with cold water

A few seconds of travel

From the glass…

To wet my lips…

To my mouth…

Going down

Nearly reaching my tummy

Then to a cold drop.

Yet unsatisfied

No delight

Dehydrated

No drink

Nor water

Could satiate

Perhaps,

A kiss

Yes, a kiss

Slowly consuming

Alock...

Atwist to taste

The sweet nectar

Playing between my tongue

Between your lips and mine

To gratify

This tempting thirst
