(Note: I wrote this poem after my ex and I got together — but only for a day. Make sure you read it right till the end.)
A poem for my ex
You and I got back together,
But only for a day,
Before each one of us went our own separate way,
We had spent each waking moment in each other’s company,
I never slept without you by my side, some said it was funny,
Touching you with my hands I relived those moments,
Those golden days when I felt content even with your silence,
I liked your dark handsome looks,
You were nothing like those two-timing crooks,
You did everything you could and yet I had to let you go,
I’m sorry for the pain it caused – you didn’t even show,
You seemed to understand when I didn’t pick you,
Yet I know you were hurt when there was someone new,
You stood on the sidelines watching as someone took your place,
You handled those moments with unmatchable grace,
And yesterday when I needed you, you were happy to be with me again,
But I was frustrated even then – I cannot feign.
You’re just not that sexy, and neither are you as cool,
You’re not the kind that would make a girl drool,
Yes you can be counted upon and no doubt you are smart,
But the iPhone is smart too – and a perfect piece of art!
You my dear Nokia E71,
My time with you is over and done,
We shared some precious moments together,
And you may call me a friend of only fair-weather,
But the iPhone has a sublime touch-screen,
And the apps are some of the best I have ever seen,
So I bid you farewell until I need you again,
Having you around for emergencies is a boon not a bane!
Ha ha – thumbs up if you thought I was talking about a guy in the beginning. Apologies to call a phone an ex but really we spend more time with our smartphones than we do with our significant others – don’t you agree?
