I Believe In Reincarnation - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

What can I say my dear
When you are feeling so ‘no’ for me!
All I can do is to consume the heat of the bonfire
Which you just lit up in my heart.
All I can do is to drown in the river
Which will never end up meeting the sea of your love.
Yet still I can love,
And I will love you
Till the moon collide with the earth.
But I beg you,
Stop colliding with me
All I want is to cling to you to death,
All I ever wanted is to cling to you till death.

If love were like a firefly
Then I collected thousands of them for you in an open bowl,
So that, you can glow
With the fluorescent light of my fondness,
And you radiated to such an extent
That the darkness fell upon me
And how easily you forgot that you belong to me!

What will I do now my dear?
Tell me,
I had stopped thinking from the day I started to think about you
I had stopped looking for the sun as you were the sun to me
I had stopped believing in death since you became my one and only life.

Do you remember?
Once that philosopher said,
“I believe in reincarnation.”
I laughed at him
But now-a-days my reflection jeers at me,
While I feel
His notion is running through my veins.
If lives are filled with losses and gains
Will I be able to find your love again?
