Ultimate Desire Of A Fellow Poet - Poem by Ratnakar Rout

We have not met yet, since
We stay thousands of miles away, I know
Pangs of sorrows drown you every moment and
Impregnate your words with emotions and subtle feelings
And allow them to move like lightening
To pierce into the quixotic souls, thus,
I meet you in your words
They conquer my heart at the first glimpse
And start reigning impulsively
I feel akin to your agony
And intend anxiously to be with you
To share your sufferings
As my mortal body
Is far away from you
Any physical existence beside you is impossible, you know
I am a formless divine entity as you are.
Since the moment your melancholic words touch me
I start realizing you at my heart and interact
With you in subtlety where forms
Play an insignificant role
You are here with me now and then
Very well present like a twinkling star in my mental horizon
You take any form I wish
And appear before me when ever I desire to meet you
Beyond this mundane world
As long as one continues in his physical shape
The worldly attachments are all-around
They tie him down externally and
He ignorantly succumbs to the ambush ordinarily
As a hapless prey and continues in
Complete illusion till self illumination enlightens him within
Since the boundless soul is independent of bondages and delusions
The relationship perpetuates and never ends
With depart of the physical body.
One needs to give up his anxiety for the body
That would shed its petals in the course of time
And look alike a disfigured painting
Once drawn artistically on the canvas of time
Are we not anxious for the immortal soul?
That never fades its color on the passage of time
And continues to blow as it is for ever
Each of us takes birth here alone
And go back also as a lone pedestrian
Mostly unsung, unwept and lost in the oblivion at the end
It is beyond any one’s imagination during blossoms
Before we depart and set out
Our return journey towards the ultimate destination
Let us for ever mingle together in the kingdom of words.
