Love – A Mystical Paradox, Love Poetry by Somali K Chakrabarti

Part of the 2016 LOVE Poetry Festival.

Love – A Mystical Paradox

A fuzzy feeling had tiptoed in

To silently grasp me in its grip

I found myself waiting to catch a glimpse

Cherishing hours of endless larks and talks

Holding hands in the alley on walks,

Relishing the whiff of a life giving zephyr,



Your intense gaze fixed on my face,

I lost myself in your entrancing embrace,

With an impulsive zeal our lips had met

In a gush of yearning, I was swept

Like a paper boat in the sea, I kept

Swirling on a colossal tide of desire,



Riddles arose, riddles were solved,

Two souls merged, egos dissolved,

Playing the sweetest harmony of its kind,

In a communion of body and mind.

I discovered myself vibrant, alive,

Drinking the magical elixir,



Love, the panacea for odds of life

Yet, was the reason for many a strife

Was it possession, an obsessive addiction?

A dependency swiveling around gratification;

From unconditional, it turned provisional

The cause of trepidation,



Followed the inevitable separation, and its agony

Haunting like an unfinished symphony

In the depths of despair, it dawned on me-

Whether we meet again or not

A part of you will always be with me,

Despite the seal of destiny –

A mystical, paradox,
