Sand And Foam (Part- Ii) - Poem by EU STRESS

I stand before the blue ocean
And ask the mighty waves:
“Why do you keep returning to the sands
Though each time the ocean hauls you away?

Have you left something behind
On the shores
That you can neither do without
Nor carry away?

Or do you splash back to erase
Moments you have inscribed on the sands;
The memories of which haunt you?

Or do you return each time
To say something
That the sands could never comprehend?

Is this tiresome tug of war
Your evidence of persistent love
That endures stressful undercurrents?

Or do you rise with a furor each time
Like Sisyphus,
And eventually subside into gentle foam
To surrender before the supreme power of love? ”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~
Inspired by the following song from the movie -Pukar:

Kismat Se Tum Humko Mile Ho
Kaise Chhodenge,
Yeh Haath Hum Na Chhodenge.

Phir Se Banti Taqdeeron Ko
Armaanon Ki Zanjeeron Ko
Jaanam Ab Na Torenge

Kya Kahoon Kaise Lagte Hain Dil Pe Zulfon Ke Saaye
Koi Bhoola Raahi Jaise Manzil Paa Jaaye
Ya Koi Dil Toofaan Ka Maara
Dard Ki Leheron Mein Awaara
Koi Pyaara, Pyaar Ka Saahil Paa Jaaye…..

Yun Sharmaati Yun Ghabraati Aise Simti Simtaayi
O Mere Baalam Yunhi Nahin Main Jaate Jaate Laut Aayi
Preet Meri Pehchaani Tuney
Meri Kadr To Jaani Tuney
Ab Dil Jaaga, Hosh Mein Chaahat Ab Aayi…………
