The Book

In my last but one post I complied to a long standing request of some of my readers 
Reading that post one of my college time buddy got upset .Honestly speaking he had good
reason to be angry , for last two years or so He was requesting me to email him the transcript of
a poem which I wrote for him while we were in college . Yes !! Back than I used to be something 
of a poet While some of my work was sort of "Okie Dokie". But most of it was CRAP .

However this Poem was "special" for my friend because I had written it for a Valentine Day card 
which He planned to give to a girl who was [At the time of writng ] Love of his life.As expected,
He got Rejected ( poor bastard) .She tore the card apart and threw it on his face without even 
reading my poem once (Bitch !! ) .

I had Fun watching the whole drama from a [safe] distance . As far as I know me & my friend were 
only two peeople in world who read that poem. Year and Half back my freind got married.On My
very first telephonic conversation with his wife, I told her the whole incedent (Thats what freinds 
are for, right ?) .Bhabhi was ROTFL listening to the story , and requested for the poem. Now there
were two people requesting the same thing .

But Somehow I never responded to their request. I was Lazy and I was afraid to look back .
But after getting their IM yesterday I decieded to finaly do it. So here is the poem "The Book ".
Fitting title I guess ,as He used to see that girl only at our college Library . Enjoy !



The Book

All Alone All by Myself  ,I am a book on her shelf 
Waiting for the day when She will come to me .

What my contents are she would like to see

This Distance is too long , From this shelf to that table 
And My Plight is that She hates My label 

Days Passed in this Way , and Thus past years 
But my silent Prayers She doesen't seems to Hear 

My Pages turned in to Yellow , and I am covered in Dust,
But Still in My life , She is a MUST

Come oh My Angel, I am waiting for you since Ages
Jsut Come for Once and Scroll My pages
