I am yours

SOMETHING I LOOK AT-108
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

       I AM YOURS 

my love!
how can i leave you
how can you leave me
when both of us are in the mid sea
battling it out to make a living?
we walked hand in hand
since the day we met
never for a minute you are away
from me, my thoughts, mind and consciousness

when i first saw you
i fall in love with your spellbinding grandeur
you captivated me with your looks
and seduced me to have your hands
since that day you have become
my constant companion, passion and obsession
where ever i am, heaven or hell
you are invariably with me
sharing moments of happiness and sorrow

you are the symbol of my masculine virility
when i feel sad and apathetic, you always come near and lovingly tell me’ my love! that time is not far away when you were as young as others and it is only matter of time when this generation with all its sophistication will grow old and fade into oblivion.’

when i look at you, you take me to the glorious days of past, when there were none, except she, you and me, life at its fascinating best, drenched with all the colours of life every now and then
as and when i touch you, i feel blood boiling inside and time going back to the days of my youth and i sense the same killer instinct deep inside and the same tenacity of purpose to run ahead of time and whoever come in the way
i can not think of a life without you
you are in my breath and beats of heart
in my arteries and veins you are flowing and my whole being is possessed by you
i have spent my youth with you
you witnessed those fascinating days i spent with my best half, the fun and pleasure i had with my kids, the ebb and flow and the chill and charm of life
how can i forget those days when you were
in the full bloom of youth and life at its very best
we have spent many a summer together
neither the scorching heat of the sun, pears of shower nor the chill winter came in our way
you have never left my hand
how can i when you are in distress and pain ?

like me you have grown old
forgive me, my love!
for a moment i thought we are unwanted
if not for others, let us be for each other
you know she is comfortable
with none, but with you and me
i will give me and you a new look
together we will move on the path of life
our life is ours and
we have still miles to go
with you and she
how beautiful life will be
there is no space for you
in your place majestically stands their mercedes
no space for me too in their life
let us make our own space
in that small apartment
where once we lived in peace and contentment

    A rambling conversation with the beloved given an intriguing touch by the third person “ she “ and the mysterious Mercedes that seems to have displaced a humbler means of transport , as an aging couple gets displaced from their own abode and loses primacy in the family
