To you who valued
Money over friendship
Who borrowed … 
Only to cheat!!
Stories of hardship
Weaved so neat!!
Promising to meet me on an evening
To return the debt
Casually marking
A date
With an arrow on the calendar!
But that is a paradise unknown to you!

You sever all connections with me -
Calls rejected,
Emails unanswered !
My faith in friendship stands torn,
Passion awaits you folorn,
Secretly uttering verses of anticipation
That you would return
     Restore the pride of associations,
     Tame the snakes of evil doubt
     And sort the riot of emotions………
All but for an amount
How big or small is not the question
It cost me a friend
Who turned into a fiend
Tell me the what went amiss
If all you need is
More time.
But that is a paradise unknown to you.
P.S.: The poem ends here... and it is a contest entry, as you can make out from the link below; but I cannot close this post without mentioning Ekta of Numerounity. She is the one who encouraged me to try my hand at poetry, fearlessly. I hope you liked reading it too.
