Journey Since Birth - Poem by Prateep Sengupta
My journey towards you
Started since the day
I was born.
The paths were turbulent
And sometimes smooth and easy
Looking at my desires
They termed me crazy.
They said, I was possessed
Since my birth.
Though I did not know you then
Yet crazily towards you
Somewhere deep inside me
There was an urge
To mingle with you
Till my identity is submerged
Behind the vastness of your surge.
I wandered and wondered
At the mystic touch
That your name awakened in all.
From moment to moment
From days to days
I uncontrollably ran
For a little glimpse of your face.
Once in my teens
Rarely by chance
We had a brief meeting
But you were on heels since then
Even in my youthful days
You never had been out of my mind.
But they said I had been a victim
Of immature love.
Everything that belonged to you fascinated me
The depth of your vision and
The darkness of your eyes;
Your tender touch, and
The mysterious musk.
Who can meet you before the destined time?
Though I knew it was an inevitable journey
I never knew when my travailing is going to end
I paid no heed to what the people say of me
It is a journey that I dare not to disagree.
