Treasure Island

veeraiyah subbulakshmi

I would not have done, if I knew it earlier..

When you called me other day,
and told me your sad story,
I should have listened to you, not have done it.

When you called me middle of the night,
and told me that you had given up all hopes,
I should have listened to you only, not have done that.

When you came to my house,
cried your heart out,
I should have listened to you ONLY, not have done that.

When you made a hell out my weak heart,
pestered me to part the hard earned money,
I should have listened to you, not have lent the cash.

When I call you now,
You already changed your phone number,
several times.

When I come to your house,
your neighbors have become old,
and you shifted to a new house.

When I manage to get your new number,
and call you, you do tell me,
that I called the wrong number.

If I knew it earlier,
that you bargained my affection for money,
I would not have lent you the money,
at least I still have a friend or a relative intact.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
