poem...From the least popular girl to the most....

Recommended Posts

i'm a naqvi , youre a kodiri

youre tajik, and i am pak

but girl cut me some slack

cuz i have been thinking of you again

wishing i could have spoken more to you

not being afraid of ya

of what youll think of me

of what others would think of me

i wish i was cool enough to be your friend

things confessed , enough to be stressed

i really wish the best 

for you....

and i was always curious about you as a person

maybe thats cuz you were beautiful

and you prob had admirers plentiful

you were gorgeous from every way

trust me when i say

that it gave me a whole new perspective

on someone being tajik

her hair was styled perfectly with braids in the front

she was tall, masha'Allah, a great slender body,

and her eyes were precious of all

Allah had blessed her immensely with beauty and charm

she was a magnet and when she spoke, people became silent

she was like a talent, 

Yeah she was most popular, the most popular

girl in my school

and i was the least popular

in my class at least,

i dont know why i fixated on her

but you know how people are around a famous person

theyre like a celebrity, that you want to know everything about

and relate yourself, and remove your own self doubts

Scared to call her nushie( her nickname) thinking it was special

only for her friends, only for her friend

how i wish i could be her friend

how i wished so bad i could been one of them

never to be, never to say

not knowing how id react if i meet another tajik anyway.(lol yeahhh)

but there was special about this girl

her state of mind would always seem like its thinking

something deep, something personal maybe?

what could it be nushie, tell me

 i still remeber the things id overhear her talk about

stored in my mind like cherished memories

things about her parents, her life, what she wanted to be

the cute guy shed see on the street, how much she loved kids

and put her in a room full of them shed always be satisfied

thats my nushie , id say with pride

and i eyed, as she'd come across the room, as she'd glide

and i sighed over the perfection of what Allah created

but i think i overdid it, because i get a feeling

it might be something she'd hated

,she was cool, she was so cool

and id feel like this fool,

that could never get through.

words from the least popular girl to the most 

why did you move away from my life

disappeared like a ghost 

while id searched for traces of you the most

needed to let go, concentrated on things of my life since then

but for some reason

coming across you again

i think of how i could have spent my time more wisely

words unsaid ,unspoken, unheard

now youre into other poets like Sarah kay,her words

youre also in a rotaract club

thats nice that nice, you know i checked out the music you listen to

trying to see what youre into 

and wanting to relate more to you

but youre a different soul

that other people probably run after

 i guess its a disaster

if youre the popular chick everyones after

i tried adding you again, on facebook on insta, 

ignored my requests, angry id spam ya

why after all these years dont you care, dont you remember me

im that girl, the naqvi, and youre just a kodiri...

now im trying to get your friends to ask ya

add me so i can see what cha

look like after all these years,

have you changed, have you stayed the same

in certain retrospects if its true

are you feeling blue, or youve gotten used to having the world move on without you

who are you, who are you, the questions id ask

who are you, who are youuuu,

i wanted an answer fast

come on nushie, let me in your world, 

i need to know this girl

who dazzled my senses, and cant let go of in my mind

try to see it my way, try to see if you can find

a piece of yourself in me

letters from a naqvi to a kodiri......

Hey girl, is life everything you wanted it to be

Why did you walk away from me

I mean I wanted to be close to you

But you said good bye without saying good bye

And it makes me cry

Why is the world the way it has to be

I feel so sick about the way we’re meant to be

So different so distant

Because I have to be one who cant seem to let go

The only one of us

Why

This poem is from the most popular girl to the least popular. :) 

 

Paper Rings

They saw my smile and my body in the hallways,

thought that I was like that ring my father gave my mother before 

he left her.

My fingers were trembling when I made the first cut in a place you wouldn't see,

somewhere where I'd forget, like how you felt. 

I didn't overhear you say it, how alone everyone made you feel,  

but I saw it from your tired eyes, because when I saw you

i saw the same eyes looking right at me, 

when I was alone in the night, without makeup, without painted-on smiles, without the clothes

that covered my scars on my stomach like moth wings. 

Only one girl knew of the incident, 

and soon you knew it too, and it was like a dream you couldn't find your voice to scream, 

or like your head trapped underwater before you could find the surface for air. 

They saw my smile, and believed I was okay because I wanted them to believe it, and to you 

I was just a paper body, lifeless, two-dimensional.  A toy in the shop for everyone

to oogle at, broken Barbie by the next week, with an arm missing. Killed in half by resentment and judgement

from the games we all used to play with our dollhouses, with our friends in tact. 

They saw my smile, and I saw my own, painted with ashes of war zone

before they heard my scream, and you heard it too, in the cafeteria, when I became a nocturnal animal afraid of light, 

From a breakdown you thought was when I didn't get what I wanted,

like every other girl who resembled me, painted-on the same face

so that you wouldn't know our reality for even a moment. 

I overheard you saying that we don't understand, and must have thought I was a facade,  

and when I saw your rare smile, 

I envied how natural you looked, and knew you'd be a paper body if only you wanted it hard enough. 

They always saw my smile, but after I saw yours, they saw my tears. 

For one moment, you pulled it off.

Icarus Fell

To fly above the crash of waves

Rising higher than the Alays

That was my cherished dream

Before I perished under the summer gleam

 

Feathers frantically coming apart at the wax seams 

From the heavens, snow white feathers fell by the reams

As I swelter and sweat under the sun's forbidding glare

For attempting what no man should foolishly dare

"My Patti"

  • So fair, thin, tall and cute.
  • Born on the rich side of town.
  • Your Daddy was the bank president.
  • I'm sure you had everything, right?

 

  • I was darker, shorter, and average.
  • Born on the poor side of town.
  • My Dad worked two jobs to survive.
  • We never had much, but I was happy.

 

  • Now that I'm married with children,
  • I enjoy thinking about my blessings.
  • I do without to make our expenses less.
  • It's good to be satisfied with what we have.

 

  • Patti, I had to think really, really hard
  • To remember your last name.  
  • If you don't remember me,
  • That's fine. I hope you are well.

Yes, it's a true story. From your poem in the OP you mentioned 'my nushie' so I thought we have to tell a similar true story.  'My Patti' was about her, so I guess that her real name was Patricia but nobody ever called her that.
