A Modern Poetic Exchange


The poet in me has changed I guess

Even he hates to be caressed;

He loves social media, an exchange, an embrace

Nothing cynical, just love and hate, silly laughter

So at the end, everyone walks away not ready to cry, simply to whisper

How dare he said that! I get back at him next time

Then again I do hope he wakes up on time at sunrise

And the modern format allows me to inflict pains on him

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
