Paradigms Of An Ocean - Poem by Pratip Sen Gupta

The paradigms of the ocean
Dissolve in your eyes

I look away
But my eyes keep returning
To yours
And when they meet
At the fringes
Of the eternal ocean
I drown in a bubble
On the foam
On the shore

Perhaps the time has come
For another ocean

I shake off the drops
But the water clings
To me
And every nuance of skin
Is wet
With the moisture
Of your sweat
On your lips

Emancipation will not be mine
Until you have left the shore

Free me
Leave the shore
Or draw me into your depths
