The Third Person

Ever realized that it always is a third person who ruins your peace of mind? Or creates arguments between you and the people close to you. The third person comes out of nowhere with an age old plan to wreck everything for you. Simply because they can't stand your happiness. Or simply because they are jobless. Don't fall prey, beware of this species. Because this is what they have in their mind.

Life never was kind to me
How can it be for you
I shall strive to ruin it
Leaving room for nothing new

When I'm not happy
How can anyone else be
Everyone is content with life
Why is it not me?

I can't stand your joys
I shall convert it to sorrow
The smile that you have today
Shall be gone tomorrow

I shall spin my magic web
Fill those around with poison
I'm just doing it to ruin you
With absolutely no other reason

While you are being taken care of
I'm ignored and left to rot
While you are blessed with comfort
Unhappiness is all I've got

My family is strewn apart
Yours still remains close knit
My gaze shall come and terminate
Knocking it down bit by bit

Your people shall abandon you
I shall spread the venom and rumor
You shall never realise what hit you
Fall you shall without any armour

I shall cuss and curse
Stabbing the knife into your back
Destroying your peace of mind
Has now become my primary knack

I shall manipulate the obvious
And do anything to prove you wrong
The happy chorus that you now hear
Shall soon become your swan song

I shall poke my voodoo dolls harder
Breaking everything between you two
My vibes shall find you everywhere
I'm the third person, with nothing else to do

  1. Hahha.. SO creative you are xD Couldn't think of a better way to take the Third Person down :)

  2. Wow this is an amazing talent vent out anger in the form of a poem...I always thought poems reflected love and romance !

    1. It depends on the poet as to what they want to reflect. Also the state of mind :)

      Glad you liked it!

  3. hahhaa..i liked this..very crisp it is :D
    cheers !

  4. very very creative. The third person as the name suggests is an outsider ready to wreck the twosome. But hope there is a remedy for this illness.

  5. Hahhaha! Lovely poem.

    These third persons..uhh..too smart to handle.

    1. Thanks!

      Exactly.. But I think its smart to just ignore them.

  6. This seems like an outsider talking to India. Someone out there is really screwing up our country!!
    Btw, I like the label you have given this poem - psycho!Lol!

    1. Hahaha, absolutely!

      Psycho needs a psycho tag, don't you think? :D

  7. Jobless, brainless people is what they are. The best thing to do is ignore them and go on with your life. Or in this case turn them into a topic to blog about! :P Turn the waste to a post - recycling.. hehe..

    1. Well, I didn't think of that earlier! Now I feel more good ;)

      Atleast they come to some use.

  8. Sometimes, it feels like I have way too many 'Third Persons' in my life. Sigh. Nice post, btw. :)

  9. Apparently, these Third Person's are hard to deal with sometimes. Sigh.

  10. Wonderful! The third person is quite a pain, yes.

  11. Block the third person :D They strive on your fb profile :D :D

    1. How do I block them on my blog is the question :P

  12. This post has been selected for the Spicy Saturday Picks by BlogAdda. Cheers! Keep Blogging!

  13. How true! Sometimes I understand why people talk about the "evil eye" - it may be mere superstition but there are some people who resent your happiness and good fortune. Unfortunately there is nothing one can do but just hope that the Third Person gets some happiness of his own so that he can let you enjoy yours.

  14. Aaaah, feel so nice after reading this!! Have recently seen such kinda thing!! You always capture the mood successfully, Soumya! :D

    - MSM

  15. So true and rightly expressed about these kind of people who can never bear that you are happy. They make sure your life turns in hell .. Frustrated maniacs..
