Before & After

Before I met you

I used to write

Poems that rhymed.


I used to walk

With my shoulders hunched

Before I saw you enter a room.


Before that day

I only used to stay up late

To get lost in the world of fiction.


I was least interested

In any form of social networking

Before I had your name and number.


I only listened to pop

Ignored the classics

Before I heard you.


These days, I listen to classics

Eagles and Floyd,

Because you love them.


I change my statuses

On social networking sites

More than often, to catch your eye.


I lay awake at night

Waiting for your texts,

And chatting with you the days I’m lucky.


These days, I walk with tall

Not with the same swagger as you,

But near.


But most importantly,

After I met you

My poems lost their rhyme.




Happy World Poetry Day, especially to all my muses who will never read my poems, but are the reason I write.


Song Title Book Tag

Finally!!!!!! I haven’t done a tag for sooooo long!!! πŸ˜€ And songs+books= awesomeness!!! So here we go…

1 – Guns N’ Roses – November Rain – Pick a book with a sad/tragic ending

As predictable as that ending was, it WAS pretty tragic. I mean, just put yourself in the shoes of ANY character in that book.

2 – Queen – Another One Bites the Dust – Pick a book which a lot of killing in it

Enough said.

3 – Britney Spears – Oops!… I did it again – Pick a book you read more than twice

Because I am a stupid person..

4 – Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here – Your currently most anticipated book

Never Never Part 3 which doesn’t even have a cover yet!!!!!! I HATE (love) Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher.

5 – Florence + the Machine – No light, no light – Pick a book that was just so bad you’d like to lock it away in a dark corner and never look at it ever again


You can decipher the cover??? You think its bad???? Multiply it by 100000, you’ll get how bad the book is.. P.A.T.H.E.T.I.C…

6 – Skylar Grey – Final Warning – Pick a book with a kick-butt protagonist you’d not want to tickΒ off

I’m finally reading this book, and I don’t wanna tick off Bella simply because she isn’t worth my precious time. πŸ˜›

7 – My Chemical Romance – I’m not Okay – Pick a book that deals with a hard topic like loss or bullying

I loved this book so much… :’-(

8 – Linkin Park – Breaking the Habit – Pick a book you read which was outside of your usual comfort zone yet you still enjoyed reading

I usually don’t read such realistic fiction, that too by Indian authors, but this book blew my mind.

9 – Troye Sivan – Happy little Pill – Pick a book that makes you happy

Its so adorable!!!! How can it not be a happy pill?? πŸ˜€

10 – Ladyhawk – Dusk Till Dawn – Pick a book you read in one night/sitting

It was so cute I couldn’t resist… πŸ˜€
