​I am not yet extinct
Just not in front of you
Or probably I am right here
But you don’t want to recognize me.

Sweetheart, I had been always so close to you
And then you misplaced me in a fit of emotions
Or that you tucked me on your head and then simply forgot
Silly you!

I was also once the most popular TV series 
About a plane crash on a mysterious island
I was the civilisation and culture of Mohenjo-Daro 
And of other cities in the ruins.

I was hidden behind those thick walls
In the midst of those old history books in the silent corridors
You loved to frequent once
But then stopped for you found greener pastures later.

I may be of bygone era, but still useful
Please find me
And keep me safe in your heart
I don’t want to be Lost yet again!


​Stop it
Please don’t do it again
It hurts every single time you cheat!
I am the rain drop that you let go
To fall from such great height into the dirty stinky po
I was the pop tart you left your ex for
And I am the one who you left for your wife.
Sitting in an empty room, facing the walls
I sob with hurt at your indifferent stance.
I am who sang a romantic song
When my mind wanted to hate you more.
Why o why
I am the one always left behind?
Why o why
I am hoodwinked all the time?

One Day

I am not crying because you are leaving me for one day
I am crying because you will leave me one day

Everything will feel right
Every other thing will become good
There will be a twist in tale
And you will be happy soon

You were just too tough on yourself
You didn’t let someone close
What was your mistake
That you loved her like a fool

Don’t worry, the clouds will shine
The rains will finally be over
The rainbow in the midst will be
The harbinger of things to come!

Someone will come
Someone will hold your hand
Someone will wipe that sarcasm off your lips
And that someone will become your sunshine indeed

There will be a picture of you two
Walking the altar
And hey, you will finally agree with me
Not all females are blood sucking bitches!

Irritatingly Repetitive

Post: EtherealJinxed | Poem: Irritatingly Repetitive | Image Courtesy: @surrealaberrantHave you been in a loop
Like a mad person in a soup

Refreshing the same thing again
In the hopes of getting a single mail

Failed attempts on holding the one
Who was never yours and that’s the pun

So have you been stuck in a loop
Where dreams are better than reality, you fool

Queuing up the moments to watch it again
With the hope of reliving it in vain

Hundred and a thousand calls,
But those were never yours to dial and shove

Yes, I have been in a loop
Stuck in a time-warp waiting for you like an old boot

Cheers and jeers

Of the times that never came
For all the fights we ever had
Let’s drink to that, baby
Whisper a tune to the unknown aplenty

With shine and spine
That was needed of me every time
Let’s drink more
For I am going to be in this shitty hole

No, let’s do cheers and drink for you this time
You ditched me again like every single time
Every time a new girl
For you are yet to find your matching skirt!

Thank you

Thank you so much
The time I needed you
You couldn’t be found
You were busy in your own tinsy happy little town

Baby, the same holds true for you
You were doing the same thing too
Right or wrong, who the fuck cares
For you were there in your own chosen world, my fair

Thank you so much
I finally got us right
We were just two parallel lines
Destined to meet, but yes, till infinite times

This place, that place
You still have nothing to say to my face

Dangling on the ropes
My stick is more lope sided than I could cope

The pain and the shain
Of trying that went down the drain

Becoming like a falling star
Which you saw and wished with eyes closed
And then it fell
And so did your wishes in the well

(and you still had nothing to say to my face)

Bas ek Khwaab

Post: EtherealJinxed | Poem: Bas Ek Khwaab | Image Courtesy: SurrealAberrantAaj main hoon betaab,
khoye khoye hain yeh khwaab.
Aawaaz ek bulaaye,
khwaabon main kho jaaye.
Teri hasi, tera mazaak,
ban ke reh gaya…
… bas ek khwaab!

Aasmaan mein bhi yeh rang,
badal se kyun gaye hain?
Din-b-din jo guzre,
baat bhi na ho paaye.
Teri hasi, tera mazaak,
ban ke reh gaya…
… bas ek khwaab!

Taare ginti hoon main,
ki tujhe bhool jaaoon.
Per taaron mein bhi tu hai,
har ek khwaab mein tu hai.

Jab bhi tu muskuraaye,
mera din ban jaaye.
Jab bhi main sochti hoon,
soch ke hi doobti hoon.
Teri hasi, tera mazaak,
ban ke reh gaya…
… Bas Ek Khwaab!

Can I take a break today
I am tired of the acts night and day

Can we discuss things
Like we used to have a fling

Can we talk as a we
And not as you and me

Baby, I had tried my best
To give everything a rest

Never wanting to let you go
I still did all to push you, my old jo

You were as close as skin can be
You were the breath holding me

How can I be so selfish
To pin you up on my cloth string

Hanging out to dry
Like my sliver of hope, however thin it might

Still, can we take a big break today
Can we have things going
Like we were used to wooing
