तू मैनु पूछ ना कोई सवाल
चल दूर किते मेरे नाल
के तेरा हो जाऊं

मैं किसी और का हूँ फिलहाल
के तेरा हो जाऊं

Somewhere I want her to know how it feels to miss your loved ones or maybe she knows it well. I want to go back to her, but I cannot. I had to move on knowing you won’t be returning. I wish we had time together.

Oh gosh!! It’s my marriage tomorrow and all I’m doing is thinking about you. I’ll be someone else’s tomorrow and forever.

Standing solitary on the terrace of my bungalow, with a beer bottle in my hand, admiring the sky, with meager hope in my eyes, chilled winds alleviating my face, I know it’s wrong to think of you at this moment. But with this song playing in my background and its entirely relatable lyrics has led me to our old lane of memories.

How I wish…
For once let’s just go to the place where we first met, singing, with no worries, with no questions, just craving for each other’s company.
For once let’s just sit close, watching the sun going down, with your hand wrapped around mine and those fluttering feelings.
You remind me how times can be good, you remind me how people can be loved.

सूखे से पत्ते हैं एक टहनी पे लगे
क़िस्मत तो देखो कि झड़ नहीं सकते
फ़िलहाल तो यूँ हैं कि कुछ कर नहीं सकते

I cannot undo anything. Neither you can. We have played our parts and left it upon fate. I know it’s the harsh reality. Somewhere in my heart I still hope for miracles. If not in this lifetime then maybe in the parallel universe.

The T-shirt

It should be biologically impossible,

For a smell to remain associated

To an object for a period of time.

Long enough to cause scabs on open wounds

And start healing the pain.

It Took Only a Blink of An Eye

It took only a blink of an eye to watch ourselves growing between those 3 am conversations to that deadline of completing the projects till the 3 of the night. Isn’t it strange how you left the isle and also let down the hope of a girl? The girl who have stopped giving herself in every relationship because she has finished herself giving to the wrong ones.

Where Did My Love Go Wrong

You hit me as a merry tide,

And my thoughts began to glide.

As my dreams sprung with shine,

You left me with just a whine.
