The Agony Of Success - Poem by sreelekha premjit

he rushed to me
to share his joy
his new found achievement

glowing eyes,
pride-coated
confessed with gay abandon

the elation of success
the pains unlimited
the adulation received

endless his talk
painful for me to endure
my eyes twinged with jealousy

how could i tell him
what pinched me
is his success
the fact that i had no share in it
the pain of standing aloof

time shall tell him
i am no fiend
just an unhappy friend

But yes, congrats
keep it up.
