A CLASSICAL FILM

Silently is how I drown in my tears.

Spilled out pain is what it is. Every drop of my tear trying to

put down the fire in my heart. The Rage would never become less.

No matter how many tears are shed. Our memories is what I see

when I close my eyes. A Classical film, is what our love story is.

Where the man leaves and the woman dies. In the ocean of her

tears is where she commits suicide. She seems to be motionless.

But she is fully awake. When the world Is sleeping. And the moon is signaling!

It is when She says goodbye!

I STILL HOPE FOR MIRACLES

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.

HOPE

My eyes are shedding tears,

As I am in pain.

A very closest of mine,

Left me in vain.

PERHAPS, MY EFFORTS WEREN’T ENOUGH

Perhaps, 

my efforts weren’t enough and, 

my holographic narratives weren’t spectacular.

The familiar belonging I was noticing, 

was just an outlandish misapprehension.

We Are Together

The world says

We can’t be together

But I proved it wrong

We are together,

In pages of my diary.

When I Fell Apart

Scribbling all over my mind,

Trembling there with my lips taking name of yours,

I knew I was about to be broken one more time.

On The Edge

I was there till the dawn,

Waiting for heaven to embrace my soul.

 

When my memories pushed me towards the edge and I tried to deter myself from getting lost,

But drenched in the storm of memories.
