Touch me

When I say,

‘Touch me,’

You touch me not

And when I say,

‘Touch me not,’

You touch me.


When I say

‘Touch me’

And you touch me not,

I groan like thunder

In the dark sky

And when I say

;Touch me not’

And you touch me,

Lightning flashes

On my soft lips

And I say to myself,

‘There is definitely a connection

Between thunder and lightning.’

    Superb ! Every word in it’s right place.Observe the simple yet highly commendable rhythmic pattern of the poem.”Small is Beautiful.” Pramila strikes again–like lightning !
