We were asked to write a “Contemporary love poem” for MICA interview -
Tulips failed to bloom my love
Diamonds only won her smirk
Gucci purses didn’t fill my love
Nor candlelit dinners spark desire
I tried my best but the more I did,
The farther away she moved from me.
Defeated and broken, I wrote a poem.
She smiled, took my hand & said –
Love, my sweet fool, is worth more than this
You don’t need daddy’s MasterCard
This she sealed with a kiss.
Unfortunately, for mankind and me
There is yet a woman to say this shit
I calmly wake up and brush my teeth.
