I asked my friends how should I,
Do something that wins her back,
A letter they said, a letter of love,
Long, cute cartoons and an ink of blood.

I love my veins, so I didn’t do it red,
But sincere still, the words poured,
Two pages full, and yes, cartoons too,
Folded twice, all corners in love.

I gave it to her, it found her bag,
Read it, I pleaded; later she replied.

Later when she did read,
She smiled and blushed, and was done quick.

Two pages of beautiful handwriting,
And five minutes of heartache that were mine
Yielded this, her reply:
“I have read the story before,
It’s plagiarized.”

I looked at my arms and the veins,
Swollen courtesy of the gym,
Maybe some blood, would have spoilt
Her inner plagiarism detector software of a mind.


law love letter, legal love letter, law student love letter

I am the Admin of Lawctopus. I am for law students, of law students and by law students. I am Torts and Contracts and moots and internships. I am your boyfriend! And your girlfriend too! Mentor. Friend. Junior. Senior. I am the footnote in your research paper. Foreword in your life. The jugaad for your internship. The side gig which earns you bucks. I am Maggi. Pocket money too.


  1. How convenient.

    Hey, look – I wrote a poem about clouds and rainbows and unicorns pooping piles of rubies.

    Now. I have this website that I run for law students – gets a ton of viewers on a daily basis. Might as well put it up out there.
    So what if it has nothing to do with educating and informing law students, so what if I’m just drinking from my own bar, so what if using my billboards to advertise about my own advertising agency. One more, please. So what if I create a monumental piece of art and sign it with a ‘Call me’?

    Here, here kind people. Throw some love and affection at this post. Sheesh.

    • We’ve put poems by law students before! Why so serious? 😛

      Lawctopus is not just to educate and inform law students, but also to portray all these things that happen in a teen-20 something law student’s life.

      We’ll continue putting write-ups/poems that entertain or are funny (though am sure you don’t find the poem to be either of the two).

      • Fair enough. 🙂

        Plot twist. The poet has a split personality. She had received the same letter before, from the same person – from the other personality. Of course, now it seems plagiarized. The two people residing in the same body might access different portions of the mind, but they do share the same biological brain. The part that helped create this piece of art, that is a common area for both – hence, both tapped into the same feelings and words.

        Game for another twist? She’s going out with the other personality. Because you see, that guy didn’t love his veins that much.

        And that kids, is how it’s done.
