This isn't to you

Women remember to forget and men forget to remember.


Boys mean friends when they say friends. Ask them what do they 'mean' by it and they would shrug? I asked!

They wouldn't call everyday but be there the day you called.

They wouldn't know what exactly to tell you about the color of your nail enamel but they'd never see just the dark circles over tears.

Guy friends after they get married are another post.

Girls have best friends. Many of that. Ask them what it means? They would gush.

They'd exchange bands in school but forget voices that once held forbidden phone cradles and sneaked to console a broken heart.

They'd wait to have lunch at the canteen in college but wouldn't bother taking a girlfriend for a lunch date.

They'd cry over the 'Titanic' sharing tissues but wouldn't shelter an abandoned girlfriend.

Girlfriends after they married are a paradox.

I keep reading what you write and I really enjoy it. I wish I could write as well as you do.
are you also good in giving advices? if so, how can I forgive, or at least forget, somebody I liked a lot and who dumped me over the phone because his ex called after two years? I know that's a difficult one.

I need to tell you this...

I have (HAD) a girlfriend of 8 yrs. We had a lot in common...we still do! I came to the IT city for my further studies and later on continued here for work. I used to call her once in a while...she used to tell me that she missed me a lot...But she never called me! She became my fiance's friend's girlfriend...and got entangled in the greatest danger a girl can ever get into..especially in a conservative society like that in Kerala! THEN, she called me! We talked for hours...and then I called her everyday for hours, consoling her, listening to her wailings...parents were involved, and more people came to support her. I didn't call her for a week...and then when I called, she told me she had mailed me a rather depressing letter...I checked my mail, only to find an endless list of things I DIDN'T DO FOR HER! I was shocked. Didn't know why she took it like that. I thought about the Rs.4000 mobile bill I paid, about the valuable time I spent calling her up and listening to her wailings! Then I realised...friendship for a girl means getting what they expect! For a guy, a cup of hot tea, shared over a cigarette...is a treasure!

An appendage!

Yes, guys do cherish those moments of coffee and tea, but nonetheless, he lives in a much more sophisticated reality than a "dreamy" girl. For him, he knows the tea that went inside will be in the commode the day after and the ciggy would have costed him a second of life.
The girl: She would have written a poetry about that very cup of tea or coffee and for sure her imaginations willcurl up in to the unending fantasy world along with that smoke!!

Who invented this goddam thing; poetry?

Clash: There requires a higher level of sensibility to understand poetry. Try reading Phantasmagoria

The question is not about the sensibility required. From Victor Jarra to Neruda, poetry did exude a lot of positive energy, when compared to Slyvia Plath.

Sorry, i was not talking about the sensibility but the futility and the farcical nature of a ladies thought that almost pushes them in to this unearthly romantic - poetry mood. To understand this; there need not be any sensibilty but a mere read of some of your posts!! I dont claim they are poems, but for sure some of them are overtly poetic, aint it?

Cheers!!
