Love at School

a poem by

Rajneesh Yadav

It was the first day of my new school
That day I was looking so stupid

As I was alone and strange
She came to me and sat on my bench

Then she introduced herself and asked my name
But that moment I was feeling ashamed

It was the first time when I sat with a girl
And her beauty made my mind whirl

Such a beauty I hadn’t ever seen
She looked just like a queen

I kept staring at her
Listening all her talks
How cute she looked while cracking jokes

Her smile was a God’s boon
Her face glowed just like moon

No one can explain her beauty in words
Her voice seemed to me like chirping of birds

Everyday I noticed each of her reaction
From her smile to cry
And the things which made her shy

Soon I became a diehard fan of her
My heart started to love everything about her

Then a day came when I fell in love with her
I started to dream day and night of only her

To sit with her
I knowingly used to forget all my books
To impress her, I started to better my looks

As she looked just like a princess
So to look like a prince, I used to wear a nice dress

In her love I was falling and falling day by day
To see her once, I didn’t miss the school, a single day

Whenever I missed her, I used to close my eyes
Then she would come in my dreams and kiss me twice

Her beauty made me intoxicated
Whenever I saw her
My heart started to beat at the speed of a rocket

My love for her was touching the sky
After school, I always followed her just like a spy

Now a single minute was not spent without her
My eyes always remained curious to see her

Every minute seemed to be a day in her absence
How happy I felt in her presence

It was becoming difficult to survive without her
Then the day came when in front of all
I finally purposed to her
Down on my knees and with a rose in my hand
I said “I love you so much. Will you be my girlfriend.”

Then she came in the pose as I was
Smiled and took that rose

Suddenly she hugged me and started to weep loud
Then she said “I love you too.” in front of the crowd

Not my cup of tea

a poem by

Nayana Saji

IIT, NIT, BIT
Are not my cup of tea
Everyone thinks for riches it is the key
Heavy heart, heavy mind
Everyone sees, yet blind
No escape, no way,
For what society thinks makes my everyday
Suffocation, reputation, pressure
My heart hurts out of measure,
Hate myself, hate them
Internally I am turning numb
Help, understand, care
Save me from this nightmare
