So many words…

EtherealJinxed Poem So Many Words

So many words to say
So many others amiss

Once they had filled diaries
Now unsent mails, often deleted

So many things to do
So many ways to start anew

Once everything clicked
Now every single time you were missed

So many cards to print
So many gifts to exchange every day

Once you would have died for me
Now every single time you wished me gone

So many hints I missed
So many friends you made to cherish your dreams

Once nothing could have been more happier
Now everything is dull and still…

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

Good Evening

Hey you mister
Who are you going with
It’s not that late in the evening still

You haven’t done this and done that
You have missed out on my poem
So bad!

Baby, it’s my cousin
A guy at that, young at heart
You would have liked him as well, my sweetheart

He wants to know if you have a cousin
He could have dated
Fun times more, like on our wedding day

Oh so you are around your cousin
And still saying all that
Fine, give me a kiss and I will give you a crack

Muuaaahh!

Oops….

Cousins sharing banter
They teasing you, but me more
Oh right down to the core

How I wish of you and me
And of all the people around us!

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!

Stuck

Post: EtherealJinxed | Poem: Stuck | Image Courtesy: Alok Gunjan
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

Rhapsody

Post: EtherealJinxed | Poem: Rhapsody | Image Courtesy: SurrealAberrantThank you for so many up and downs
Every time I feel happy, you make me frown

There is that little thing
Your so called hiding nothing from me
Only give me shocks to bang my head on the rocks

You are the chocolate I cannot have
Or so, said one of your fans
I had the chocolate
And ever since I rued my decision of getting addicted

Thank you for so many up and downs
Every time I feel happy, you bring me down

Thanks to those very specks of dirt
Turning the winds in a way
To settle on everything I had on hold
Making me realize the folly on my own

‘Cause that was a folly to be ignored
For it was a thing withering on its own
‘Cause life was such
As time run faster than I could have mold

Oh really, thank you so much for all up and downs
When what I feel, matters no more!

Too Late

Post: EtherealJinxed | Poem: Too Late | Image Courtesy: SurrealAberrantSpoke the girl
With clarity and from her heart
You will never get
What you stole from me

You made him lie to me
And he will lie all through your life
You will keep him always dissatisfied

You can’t act naive anymore
I have seen you through and through
That’s what you will come to know
One day just too soon

But you will realize it too late
Oh, this one will be for good
And no one to fool
Only to shoot

Office office

Post: EtherealJinxed Poem Office Office | Image Courtesy: SurrealAberrantOh my God!
What has this guy got

Urbane and polished
The girl is of high class

Flirting and teasing
Bringing down the guards

Oh my God!
What has this girl got

Toned and polished
The guy looks amazing

Secretly watching
The coming back age

Oh my God!
What have they got

Different offices of different make
Hanky panky in office across the desks

Distant since so long
Finally enjoying the moment they got

Off the Shelf

Image Courtesy: SurrealAberrantYour hello was my sin
Life just tricked me thin
The miseries grew off the shelf
With the time passing all by itself

I want to be a simple girl
With her prince at her side
Prince charming to hold her hand
And walk the million miles beside

Of the sort of attention I got then
I felt to be in a whirlwind fix
Am I performing a roadshow
Or walking on the ramp giddy?

No one asks me what I want
They tell me this time it’s different
But every fall they leave me
After promises and their vows

Craving for a simple straight life
Your hello became my sin
But why I am the one to pay
With every single fling!!

Note: One of the few times I want to actually write for someone else. This one is dedicated to my friend.

Trance

Rain drums my window
Tiny heartbeats marching
As I linger inside waking
My sleep slowly departing

Opening my eyes slowly
I peeped into darkness
Hearing the heartbeats frantic
I touched his face by my side

Absorbing the comfort
Of the warmth he provides
I watch the morning light
Trying to fight its way inside

Caressing the skin
Was the early morning breeze
And pulling me closer
He hugged me tight

Cotton sheets beneath us
He opened his eyes and smiled
And suddenly I knew our destiny
Was preparing us for the miles

II
Rain drummed my window
Tiny heartbeats marching
As I lingered inside waking
My sleep was slowly departing

Opening my eyes slowly
I peeped into darkness
And a shimmer of his image
Was all that was left

Absorbing the eeriness
Of the sound that was just there
I wrapped my arms around
Trying to fight the urge to cry

Chilling the skin
Was the early morning breeze
And I woke up
For it was yet another of my dreams

P.S: My first duet poem with a girl I found online. It was a great pleasure working with her.
