Second Love - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

This is for the person
Who showed me what is first love,
This is for the person
Who showed you what is first love,
And this is for that first love
Which never turned into a last one,
For that love did not last forever.
It destroyed the dreams of foolish dreamers
Like me, like you,
It taught the naïves like us
Everything of love doesn’t always become true.
So, this is for those false lovers,
Who changed our every hope into delusion
Who wrapped gifts for us with icy desolation.
And this is for us too,
As we waited patiently for miracles to happen
Like moon sometimes shines blue in the sky
Sometimes glows red when people die
Screaming their first lover’s name,
Till their throat’s each vein
Burst into unbearable pain,
And they choke with their own blood
Helplessly surrounded by impossibility’s flood!
But life doesn’t stop, so we learn to cope
Each day we see sun and reincarnation of hope
From the windows of our heart.
Sometimes we yearn for the stars and the moon
In the sky of a dazzling noon,
And maybe, maybe we get a glimpse again
Of the love that never dies.
The love of giving everything
Until we are left with nothing.
Thus, with our eyes of gleaming tears
We start looking for a someday
That will one day
Bring for us the second love of tomorrow.

    We can dream dreams as much as we want but action enveloped in kindness, care and loving arms reaching out will one day find that true love that will last a lifetime. First and second may not cut it but alas a third brings forth the beauty, love without pain. Life moves on with or without us and while we're here on that train we my as well learn to enjoy the beauty that will come along. This is a great SpokenWord piece coming from the heart and one day answers will flow like a breeze. (Report) Reply

    But life doesn't stop, so we learn to cope
    Truly, this is an optimistic approach.
