The Cold Shoulder

I stood there in front of them, staring,
Both engrossed in each others caring,

I stood there watching, my fastest friend he was,
The one who taught me that friendship had no clause,

They stared at each other and smiled at each word,
While I just stood there waiting and bored,

I looked up, looked down, to find someone I tried,
And kept shifting my weight to the other side,

I wish then, there was someone beside me right,
With whom I could share my miserable plight,

I waited and waited, it seemed like months and days,
For him to come around in his original ways,

I always thought that changes were inevitable,
But never imagined they could be so pitiable,

I thought he would come by, at least when I was in trouble,
But I guess it was hard for him to break that bubble,

I waited a lot and I waited some more,
But inside I was hurt by what he had done many times before,

But I realized it was my mistake, that I expected things from him,
Cos he wasn’t the best of them, for he was always so serious and grim,

I smiled , shrugged, and turned around to go back,
The girl noticed and she called back,

It mattered none to him as I stared at him colder,
For I knew what I had got from him...the cold shoulder.

simple n nice..
well if its based on some experience you've had then never mind..sometimes the one who's giving a cold shoulder doesn't even realize it.so it may not be intentional.

anonymous seems to be AN. Had already read this before you put it up on google reader and also all your codes "backup" :P. Well written...

This is ex-single person's plight if i am not mistaken coupled with tidbits from here and there.
End is a little bit misleading and confusing...Good good. Yugandhar Garde "poet", another feather in your cap. You have so much to tell your children !

good so now atleast the pointed lot(many of them as you said), know there's a life around their shrink.. and now that you've written it, I'd expect some cultural sense when i pass by your bubble:D...
