Love and Jealousy

My Poem "Love and Jealousy" published in this national anthology "With Love"

First came her elder sister
Her name is Love
Other sister is jealousy
Made my life tough

Loved my sweet heart
As far as I Can
Swallowed all the pain
For the mistakes of my man

To see faults of my love
Jealousy whispered in my ears
Saw little things that create anger
That filled my eyes with tears

Felt anxious and nervous
With fear and worry
Thinking not loved by the person
Whom my heart loved truly

Glory of love vanished
When the green eye monster came
Made my heaven hell
Burnt sweet emotions by its flame

The dragon ate my meat
Through my doubtful mind
Wiped out the paradise of love
Just like sands by the wind

Rewarded or punished
With bitterness when envy arrive
The lovely relationship lost
Thinking its dead or still alive

N.MLeepsa's Poetry


My poem "FAME" published in Taj Mahal Review June 2013!  
Poem Description: It is a A poem of fourteen lines using formal rhyme schemes, in English typically having ten syllables per line length.

Success defined in money, name, fame
Is merely confused with real life's aim
Where human fears to fall in the thought of rise
The glamour world turns them foolish from wise
They forget even a shining star fall
So aim to get a place in heart of all
Respect is not something to achieve
It is rather to be won I strongly believe
Any materialistic thing will come and go
On death, honour is the best thing the world could show
So do not squander in life for fake fame
Build your character, love and truth you claim
Be grateful before God for the talents he gave
Be thankful to those who shed tears near your grave

Shades of Love and Life,, pages 117, Rs 200 (US$15), ISBN 978-81-8253-338-7 This anthology of eighty poems is the maiden venture by a young lass for whom writing the book was like long journey stretched over a period of five years. These are all love poems. But though written in the first person they are not autobiographical for the poet is not in love with anyone; she is love with love. So she had tried to capture the bliss and sorrow, hope and despair, thrill and pain of being in love. The poems are addressed to loved one but the object is not a man in all poems, Nor God, the eternal beloved of mystic poets. In many poems like “My Love You Never Knew My Love”, “I Don’t Like When She...”, “I Like When She”, “I Am Sorry”, “I Apologise”, “Never Got Again”, “She Pretends”, “Waiting Eyes”, “Do Not Hide Yourself”, “Oh Lady In Forest Green”, “Sleeping Beauty”, etc man is the lov…
