when in deep sleep


When in deep sleep you seemed like an immaculate angel; breathing
heavily with
incoherent sounds emanating from your semi open lips,
While the instant you awakened; you pummeled your fists against the
wall;
clenched your teeth in indignation.
When in deep sleep you seemed to be profoundly oblivious to your
surroundings;
with your lids firmly agglutinated to your eyeball,
While the instant you awakened; you cast a series of despicable looks;
castigating me severely for the inconspicuous smudges aligning the
furniture.
When in deep sleep you changed positions umpteenth times in a minute;
with
your clothes strewn in a disheveled heap,
While the instant you awakened you stringently made sure that I sat up
straight without flinching the least; the attire that I wore was neatly
creased and meticulously ironed.
When in deep sleep you mystically smiled; perhaps envisaging the
fairies in
the cosmos; with an enchanting glow encompassing your facial contours,
While the instant you awakened you were crimson with anger; rebuked me
for not
scrupulously washing my face.
When in deep sleep you inadvertently caressed my hair; fondling with my
cheeks
as if admiring their pudgy softness,
While the instant you awakened you were aghast at being late for
office;
slapped me hard for not braiding my hair.
When in deep sleep you unwittingly uttered all those things stored well
within
your heart; vanquishing all apprehensions that engulfed your
silhouette,
While the instant you awakened you started manipulating the words to
speak;
refrained from giving me the tiniest of insinuation.
When in deep sleep you sometimes walked innocuously; languishing in the
aisles
of romantic fantasy,
While the instant you awakened you uncouthly barked orders for a cup of
tea;
splashed the same on the walls when it was not sizzling to the
temperature you
desired.
When in deep sleep you wriggled inside the cozy delights of your quilt;
blissfully exploring the moisture beneath the pillow you slept,
While the instant you awakened you threw aside the covers in intense
infuriation; frantically searching for your radiant watch and
glistening
chain.
When in deep sleep you unconsciously laughed; when I poked a thin blade
of
grass in your ears; gave me a celestial smile,
While the instant you awakened you barked a volley of abashing
expletives;
condemning me for not polishing your shoes.
When in deep sleep you were the perfect husband for whom I had heaps of
adulation; while the instant you awakened I had lost all reverence for
your
persona,
As I wished and prayed fervently to the almighty; to transform you like
the
way you were 'WHEN IN DEEP SLEEP'.
