Y - Yogurt

Sleek demeanor.
Suave manner.
Young at heart.
Agile in steps.
Smile on face.
Charm in check.
Mr. almost 40,
like the tangy Yogurt,

X - X shaped Cookies

Who says cookies
can be only O shaped.
I make X shape cookies too.
For whenever I set
the plate for you,
It says out loud,
XOXO from me to you.

I thought you hated waffles!

But my 3 year old boy

And so, I make waffles,
For the love of my life.

V - Vanilla

I am always drawn to her -
her serene face,
those kaajal less eyes.
The light shade of lipstick,
the unkept hairstyle.
She is like Vanilla.
No matter which flavor
you taste in life,
you are always drawn to it.

P - Popsicle

They kept
licking their candy bars
and kept on saying alternatively
Ice Lolly!

Madly in love with each other
they loved fighting over
what to call the candy bar.

Thinking of one reminds you of the other.

N - Nougat

Looking at you,
listening to you,
caring for you,
protecting you,
while you were right,
even when you were wrong,
I was always there,
By you side,
in stride,
but you
made me feelike
a NOUGAT in a chocolate bar,
always there but unacknowledged.

M - Macroon

She was scared
to go on stage
when she was 5.
All of 35
she is scared
to meet her in-laws
for the first time.
What I say to her is still the same,
You are one of a kind -
a Macroon
dont forget this and smile.

L - Lemon-cupcake

Waiting at the railway station
I kept checking the watch.
I wanted to see her
Before I boarded on.
For fear to be seen along
she came all covered on.
Her fears always makes me angry.
But she came and hugged me straight
And my Lemon-cupcake stole
my heart all over again.

K - Kiwi Cooler

He always keeps his cool.
I may get angry
And let out my frustrations.
He keeps his smile on,
Saying things that just
melts my heart.
He is my evergreen
Kiwi Cooler
Soothing for all seasons.

J - Jalebi

What do you like most about him?
The way he weaves little stories -
starting with one,
leading to another.
Everything adding up to
what he wants,
making one yearn
for more alongside.
A Jalebi of sorts -
An entangled sweet mesh
giving pleasure to
The maker and eater alike.
