The Loving Cobra

The love scene of a cobra, I saw,
It kisses all over the body of its
Love-hit snake -girl, very carefully,
Keeps close its mouth, not to
Wound her, keeping its teeth in,
Shut closed its venomous flows.

The word cobra and its Indian
Feel of fear on this reptile, I forgot
For a while, anxiously watched a
Hot scene, a lover waiting for his love,
Calling her with his love tone,
The vibrator, a snake owns to prattle.

He called his love; for my surprise, she
Came crawling out of hole, looked around,
And saw her spouse, waiting, nearby;
Her bashful and shy face, gleamed,
I saw love, in creepers, reaching its lover,
on his call, it needs to meet and mate.

And my cobra, the lover, slowly,
Crawled forward; his love, the female,
Just like our girls, a teen-aged damsel.
Came out creeping, face shines in love;
They kept silent, for a while, not moving
Not crawling, they gazed each other.

No more, the cobra could wait, he
Kissed her face all over, and her
Whole body, as she moved forward
And backward, tickled; he kissed, all her
Tickling points, he knows, carefully,
And slowly he did, possibly he could.

Crawling, grovelled over her, taming,
Harmonizing and domesticating her
The spouse, my Cobra, slipped over her,
Embraced, confined and integrated both
For an amicable gliding affability, twisted
And entwined; they copulated in deep love.

Love making, not a short term affair,
I know, it is long, endurable process of
Elation, effusing love, to edify its effect,
The fulfillment of everlasting love, recreating
Body, mind and soul together, fully sharing
One another the ebullient emotions it has.

No hands, no legs, only the body; enough
They feel impassioned to envelope one
Another, ascending in tipsy, they blend
Together kissing face to face and tail to tail,
Not knowing the time, space, day or night,
They melted, dissolved and absorbed within.

I turned back to call my wife; and saw her,
Carefully picturing the whole in her mobile phone,
The love scenes of a cobra and its spouse,
An enticing and enrapturing experience,
The long, enduring love, a cobra had with his
Spouse, the snakes, crawled on, one over other.

The clippings, of cobra’s love-scenes,
Their deep involvement, we saw once again,
Before we go to bed; ‘snakes, more sensitive
And loving, why our men rape women?’
She asked, quoting head-lines of TV news,
No answer I had; I crept on as she liked.
