Hurricanes

All you do All you say All you write In the jasmine garden Is a frenzied drum Bludgeoning me to dumb Intensely numb I feel As I reel Yes As you come Rising on tides Passion overflowing Deluge in the veins In a hurricane You dominate You violate You annihilate My stability My balance My tranquility My nonchalance You seek to Sweep me off my feet I resist To be devastatingly kissed Who does want A plundered restaurant I hold breath But you hit underneath With your tremendous vigour A wild rigour Breaking all norm Of rhythm and form You become The fierce Atlantic storm From head to toe Fast or slow Everything you claim You monster hurricane In a primitive joy You destroy Spears and arrows you employ Pull down and enjoy In a poor coordination I reach my limitation And surrender Before your violence And horror Frantically you tear All the roses there The tendrils of hair The hymns of prayer Whether in Florida Or in Miami Riding on reckless liberty Everywhere the same misery Either Katrina or Irene Harvey or Irma The same surging ocean The same commotion You flood me with I groan beneath I have to writhe And wriggle as fiercely you breathe Well now as you are quieted Having deconstructed All my emotions Are now back to the ocean Give me your resilience The ocean’s brilliance Let me reconstruct and create My new cup and chocolate My balance In the new circumstance In future if you need to come Come with tribal drum Played by striking with sticks In the nerves crimson kicks Come in drizzling ice and gentle rains Not in tornadoes and hurricanes Please …

Brilliantly creative poem, Probir. The use of hurricane as a metaphor for love/desire is a stroke of genius. You pen paints the quiet tranquil along w/the torrential storminess. Such an excellent piece of prose. An instant fave for sure. Stellar bright poetry.
