Soulmate (Dt Aug'08) - Poem by Sanjukta Basu

What’s the point
of those damned soul mates
Always crossing your way?
You see they all seem to be
way beyond your league
you can’t get them anyway.

Soul mate is to be, a part of you,
that you didn’t even know was missing.
A part at which when you took one look
and knew, it always belonged to you.

One look and you are in love.
love yourself and love him,
because he is you and you are him.

Yet what’s the point
of those damned soul mates
who won’t pass the system check.
Height, weight, age,
language, last name, place.
