one more .....poem???

WHILE I'M YET TO WRITE ON WHAT ALL I WAS 'BUSY' WITH FOR THE LAST 20 DAYS OR SO, HERE'S SOMETHING WHICH I WROTE DURING THE FIRST PERIOD TODAY!!(STILL CAN'T SEEM TO RECONCILE TO THE FACT THAT WHILE IN CLASS I'M SUPPOSED TO LISTEN TO THE TEACHER!!)

SO HERE IT GOES..(COULDN'T FIND A TITLE.. ANY SUGGESTIONS ..APART FROM THE BRICKBATS,CRIBS,RAVES AND ....)

...............................................................................

THE DATE AND TIME WERE SET
FOR THE RENDEZVOUS.
TO SEE THE PRETTY ONE,
HE'D BEEN TRYING TO WOO.

HE STILL CANNOT FORGET ,
THEIR FIRST ENCOUNTER
IN A VERY PIQUANT SITUATION,
BOTH OF THEM WERE.

HE RAMMED INTO HER FROM BEHIND
I MEAN,HIS PULSAR INTO HER SCOOTY.
SHE CREATED A FURORE,WORDS ADDING FUEL TO FIRE.
AFTER ALL, A FIERY YOUNG WOMAN SHE WAS.

PROFUSELY HE APOLOGISED, BUT TO NO AVAIL
SHE FINALLY CALMED DOWN, AND APOLOGISED IN RETURN.
FOUND HIM VERY NAUGHTY , WHEN ASKED FOR A CUP OF COFFEE.
COFFEE CAN WAIT, SHE SAID AND GAVE HER MOBILE NUMBER INSTEAD.

HESITANTLY HE SENT THE FIRST SMS FORWARD
WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY THE DELUGE OF REPLIES.
MOVING AHEAD FROM SILLY SMSES
THEY BEGAN TALKING SOON.

HE FOUND HER INTERESTING
SHE FOUND HIM SILLY,FUNNY AND TEMPTING!
BOTH MOVED CLOSER TO EACH OTHER
THOUGH THEY NEVER MET ONE ANOTHER.

FINALLY HE CONJURED UP ENOUGH COURAGE
ASKED HER OUT FOR A DATE.
SAID WE'LL MEET AT THE COFFEE PLACE
AND TALK OVER PASTRIES AND FRAPPE.

TO HIS JUBILIATION SHE AGREED
SAID- WILL COME IN MY FAVOURITE COLOUR- GREEN
CONFESSED EVEN SHE WAS EAGER,
TO MEET THE PERSON WHO'D RAMMED INTO HER.

HE WAITED ENDLESSLY AT THE COFFEE SHOP
BUT THERE WAS NO SIGN OF 'THE ONE'
NOW THOUGHT HE, SOMEONE ELSE HAS RAMMED INTO HER.
RETURNED DISAPPOINTED WITHOUT THE ENCOUNTER.

AND THEN THE SKIES OPENED UP
HE STOOD DRENCHED WHILE EVERYONE SCURRIED FOR COVER.
PETALS OF THE ROSE WERE ALL WASHED AWAY,
WHILE THE SKIES OPENED UP AGAIN!

i hv a better idea....let the poem flow into a story....
all the while that guy was sitting quite...there was a girl too..sitting at a corner table...waiting for...ah well nobody in paritcular....she was an observer and luved to observe ppl...but noone observed her ever...she watched the guy sitting alone...sad and lonely...she wanted to help...but cudnt pick up the courage....torn as she was at other instances...when ppl befriended her...poured their hearts out...and when it came to her speaking out...nobody cared to listen...so she decided to let the feeling go...then suddenly she noticed the guy wasn't there anymore...had he heard wot she was thinking of...lo...he's gone even before she cud entertain the idea of accosting him.....and so..sadly she walked out....and the song played on the radio... of a car tht stopped at the redlight
'aakhir tumhe aanaa hai
zara der lagegi
baarish ka bahana hai
zara der lagegi
tum hote koi dushman to koi baat hi kya thi..
apno ko manana hai...
zara der lagegi'

both of them were so busy hearing the song tht they ignore each other's presence completely!!
......but the story had just begun !!
