Rookie (15th sept / kannur)


Playing cards?

Was that me?

Shuffling through many of them

Definitely I was one among them

He dropped equal ones…….

Complemented one another

There was definitely a quest for me

The never ending quest

A face of contentment when I was in his hands

Nervousnes when I was with the other

Again the face lights up

When I am back with him

They dropped their cards

When right matches popped up

Till at last I remained

He lifted me up

With gratification and satisfaction

Cause success was his

As long as I stood with him

The game was over and he walked back home

And I went off to sleep

With the contentment that I made him happy

Till I woke up in the morning

& looked into the mirror

I realized I have a joker face

You need me in the game

& its easy to win with me

Still I was a joker

Joker in the game

Choice was mine

I could leave or continue

But I decided to wrap up

The joker face

Cause I wanted to be in the game

In the game of love n life……..! !

You can scoff n scorn

Or poke fun at
cause jokers are for pleasure

Whether they laugh or cry within
