Sand-bank

I was not a virgin
When I let you take me
Had met many a turn
In many a bank
Laughed and cried
As I was made and unmade
Dancing down terrains
I was untangled and free
To touch lands I loved
And flood all when I was in a fury
Till you crossed my path.

I receded and made way for you
Waited as you led me on to bend
With your aggressive love
Your rough sandy being
Razed and grazed me
I shifted my path to make way for you
And took a detour from then on
Graceful in my motion with love for you
Heavy with water laden
I went on
To give all of myself
And give birth at the all-receiving sea.

    It is ever the mark of a true,dedicated Poet that they oft times deal with and address subjects that are for the casual reader emotionally complex and difficult. Madhumita is such a Poet.
