To Love You, O… You River Poem by Dhiren Doley

To Love You, O… You River

A fetus, by mistake, was conceived
In my mom's womb-
To love you;
And tearing all the walls of birth pain
I took the human form
Droplets of blood oozed
Breaking the womb of my mother

I sacrifice the sky
The Moon, the Sun and the stars
My flesh, blood and bones
My pleasure, my nights and hopes;
I do to love you

To love you
I live a thousand nights
In the forest of emotion

I am a Jew in maroon
To love you

At the cost of all my blood
I bear in my bosom
A promise made to love you

German you are
Philistine you are
And I, I am Jew
Because I love you;
Desert me alone,
Imprison me in the secluded island
Leave me in the billows of the seas
O.. yet, touch not my heart,
Instead of all my twinge
I want to love you

To love you
O… river
I am reeds, giant reeds
Growing on your bank
With the floods of all your cruelty
Peel and erode and flow me far
Yet, let me and my existence
Merge into your eternal mobility
And my past and my emotion
And my senses
Let me dissolve in your unkindness

O you river
Let me merge with you

To Love You, O… You River
