We Are Made For Each Other - Poem by Ratan Bhattacharjee

You waited for me all the night
With your soft body,
Your smooth arms, bright locks of hair
Rosy lips, plump legs,
And with hungry look

I was there for you to tell
You are for me and me for you
Made for each other
To enclasp you as the rivers mingle with the ocean
And as the fountains with the river
I wanted to come near
With a similar ardour.
You became a river with thousand ripples
I became a boat floating gleefully ever

But suddenly I felt the flesh
I smelt ugly dirt, the fatty deposit
Around your navel, your body, your breast
I drew close to you
The pungent smell entered into my being
I felt sick
and found none to tell me
Heaven was near or
We are made for each other.

    ‘…You became a river with thousand ripples /I became a boat floating gleefully ever…’

    This is the ‘rose-spot’ spot of the poem for me…Uncle …finish was gosh to me….is it an anti-climax…drooping readers from height of exultation to exclusion lolol…

    Any thing poets can ad does …that’s why its p-o-e-t-r-y alas wish-unfilling-filling-spreetree!
