Geeks and Embarrassments

I have been a geek forever, mostly embarrassing friends and family around me. This time I did go a step further. It was meant to be something really personal. But then when I told what happened she was embarrassed. Of course she likes most things I do. This time too a second later she smiled at me and asked me whether was her name open data :) Of course there I was covered.

She wrote this for the geek inside me a while back

L-O-V-E

I could question him every day for proof of his love
Instead I said, “Make me your password”
The clarity of his reply resounded
With the assurance I needed.
“You are already a part of my hard disk key”, said Clarity
The loveliest gesture in his digital world.

His writing ability often vexs me
His spellings, grammar; like monkeys on a page
Misbehave to ruin the moments in his coaxed letters.
One January evening, he hands me an LIC diary.
Later when I open to make it my own
“To my Life Insurance” sing the monkeys in harmony
And my “fine” writing ability goes up in flames
as my heart melts into a puddle of love
for my simpleton.

Note:
1. Well I am not embarrassed any more.
2. Of course password has been changed since them. And it wasn’t simple name password if you know what I mean :)
