To a teacher…

To the teacher,

Who taught us, but didn’t teach us

To the teacher,

Who was worried for us, but didn’t care for us;

To the teacher,

Who knew nothing about the mind of a child-

yet had 5 of his own:

We shall leave, please leave with us,

Children behind us shouldn’t suffer.

Newton,Einstein and Pythagoras’ works can be explained in better ways;

They didn’t order you to kill us.

To my teacher,

Won’t be easy for me believe-

Better gurus exist:

To the teacher,

Don’t use slangs; be compassionate:

Don’t hurl shoes-be considerate.

Frenemies and frengers

If,

Friends are the ones-

Who betray:

If,

Friends are the ones;

Read more

Who go away-

When they’re needed the most;

If,

Friends are the ones

Who don’t know what’s friendship;

If,

‘Friends’ aren’t friends:

I wonder who are,

Frenemies and frengers.

I wonder what do-

Frenemies and frengers do…

I Knew…

I knew,

You were the one

From your faint smile.

I knew,

From the very tiny crack

On the left side of your spectacle frame;

Which no one else could see but me-

It’s you.

The awkward ‘step-cut’ hairstyle:

From the back,

I knew,

It’s you.

Your manly voice that startles me every time you speak

I can say, even without looking up from my Chemistry notebook

It’s you.

I knew,

9th standard Arithmetic won’t get into my head,

So instead: I chose to stare at you;

Like I stare at the full Moon-full of craters, yet so calm, so bright, against the dark sky.

And guess what? I got an A!

I knew,

I had the best intuitions;

My girlfriends commented-“Even Holmes would fail”.

I knew,

Every time my heart skipped a beat,

It was because you were coming towards me, with your History book, to clarify a doubt:

Yeah, I knew

My childhood game of instincts fared well.
