Poetry 2013 Longlist, Rahul Jain

Expectation

I know someone who is a sweet person,
And we both used to share a very friendly relation...
We fought a lot, details of which I need not mention,
But sooner or later, we somehow used to end that aberration...
Few weeks later, not all of a sudden,
Friends we were better, which rose my expectation...
I should've have realized, known there and then,
It could prove costly, to the extent of the Relation...
The moment had some ego but loads of emotion,
And Brought between us, tonnes of tension...
Neither was ready to compromise in the situation,
One of the best options was to rethink while in hibernation...
The situation had left me into some sort of depression,
Little had I realized I should've controlled my aggression...
Every action with itself brings a sure-shot reaction,
Our friendship started to move on the path of descension...
I tried my best to change your anger-prone decision,
To prove to you that my aggression was only your illusion...
I tried pleading, persuasion, and then there was confession,
But you ceased to melt and showed growing apprehension...
All this has left me in a state of fear and abrasion,
Trust me, your friendship, to me, has never had an aversion...
