Recently, as I was going through some of my old books, I came across a few poems that I wrote between 2008 and 2014. Then I remembered that this blog has a tab called ‘Poetry’ that has so far remained untouched. I will share these pieces with you gradually, before I get the inspiration to write fresh pieces.
Sweetheart-By Edward Maroncha
(This piece was written sometime in 2008, when I was a love-smitten 18 year old)
Smiling broadly and knowingly
Her perfect set of teeth showing
Her pair of dimples mesmerizing
She make you just gaze!
When she talks to a he
Bile pours on your heart
You yearn to do him harm
For catching her gracious attention!
Every time she looks at you
Your knees are filled with jelly,
Your pulse rate doubles,
Because she makes you weak!
Everything she touches is breathtaking
Even the biscuit wrapper she discarded
Earns your utmost respect
I guess she is a real fay!
Teasing your very intelligence
She gives you her faulty phone to fix
But you simply cannot concentrate
And you brand yourself a fool!
Hot blood races in your veins
Whenever he walks up to her
Because he is always at ease
And he makes her shy!
Every time she is not around
You gather courage to approach her
You prepare a short flowery speech
But when she comes you melt!
