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.

 

-Sripurna.

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