Don’t Seduce Me

Don’t seduce me,

You may be as luscious as Menka,

But you can’t be triumphant eventually,

In stealing my sleep, leaving me in insomnia.


Indeed I’m an admirer of beauty,

Yet I don’t want to be a sinner,

I don’t call myself a saint heavenly,

I loved only one girl forever.


Even if she is not beside me,


I can feel her existence ever in my psyche.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

In Hindu mythology, Menka is the heavenly nymph who seduces Vishwamitra, one of the most esteemed sages in ancient India.
