Madam what happened ?
She said I am NORMAL
But he said, you can still tell me
I am your old friend
She said :Shut up and don’t offend

Friend was worried
Why she is so serious ?
Just few days back she was fine
And now her mood is mysterious

Friend did a Google search in brain
Tried to figure out what 's driving her insane
Break-up, periods, hair-fall who is to blame
He confirmed with her again
But the outcome was same

Finally when her eyes were a little wet
On forehead a thin layer of sweat
She uttered something
Which seemed like a threat

To his utter surprise
He was the actual culprit and vice
This stopped his processor for a while
He became serious but he smiled

He stressed his grey cells
To recall what he did
Search result was Zero
He was left perplexed instead

He asked her again
Why was he blamed?
She kept her amplitude high
He could understand the reason why

Based on his track record
He did similar things in the past
He forgot what he said
Coz he knew the joke will not last

But this time a benign joke
A funny stroke
Has hurt someone hard
She said this is the end of friendship
An end of bonhomie’s boulevard

Hence a couple of words
Have changed the meanings
Friendship chord snipped
And No hard feelings

He found this reason strange
A funny joke and they estranged.

PS:As usual there was a truce after few days and a school time friendship was restored again.

It is all for the best

From merely a probability
It became reality

What were the odds
For this odd event to happen
Where were the gods
Who could have changed course of action

Smiles disappeared
Uncertainty cleared
Standing alone among many
At the crossroads I feared

Holding my wrist
Destiny fixed my tryst
But Gods will not be blamed
In prayers they wont be ashamed

My benign wishes
Are not meant for Recycle bin
Back to square one
Soon a new journey will begin

Lets start again
Lets start afresh
Lets forget the outcomes
Coz they say, 'It is all for the best

Worth your while

Miles away from home
I travel , explore and roam

Like a kid
Excited and avid
Discovering the discovered
Uncovering the uncovered

Capturing moments in stills
As a memory which instills

A symphony in mind
An opera which reminds
An era of smile
A period 'worth your while'.

The Mask

I borrowed in pieces
Few grams of Peace
To scratch out and erase
Thick layers of urban grease

This smear on my face
I showcase with a fake grace
Is a slave of hedonism
Oblivious of my purpose
I adore materialism

Running madly in a rat race
To compete with incompetents
For reasons I dont know
For people who dont care

But still I am running
In all possible directions
To catch everything
To chase anything

Caught in a virtual matrix
Sleeping with eyes wide open
At times in those day dreams
I venture out of this realm

To realize the difference
Of messy tangible existence
I pledge to renounce
this school of belief
And promise myself
To turn over a new leaf

But again back in day dream
I forget to redeem
To wipe off that smear
and fake ensemble i wear

I run again in a race
To justify pride in abase
To undertake mundane task
Still on face a smeared mask.
