The Selfish Lover
This word is going to be easy for you;
Because you’ve claimed it,
Some felt it,
Some used it,
Some trimmed it,
Some faked it,
Some jinxed it in their pocket
To serve it as a business;
Huh, it’s available in the market
In every ad and in the entire marketing syllabus.
But no matter, how much
It is overused and trashed,
You, still at the vulnerable but a hidden corner of your heart,
Would be growling on your knees,
Alas! We both know that
There is no one here in this vicinity.
Even if there was someone,
You’d miss a particular sense of purity
The introduction of innocence, a bit of sadness and humour.
Thus, creating a life with certain decency!
Let’s cut out this distance,
Get out of the ‘friendzy’-zone,
Pour some milk over this,
Drink it, sip it and turned up the nob,
Fizz out of your city,
Look out for me in all your ambiguity;
Because, I am stuck here, missing you,
