गर साथ हो, तो साथ चलो

ये कैसा सन्नाटा है ज़िंदगी
जो इस कदर बेबस करती है
कि शाम ठले
तो तुम्हारी यादें शोर-ग़ुल
चैन तबाह कर देती है 

इससे अच्छा तो यह होता
कि कुछ दूर और हम साथ साथ चलते
और यूँही किसी मोड़ पर पलक झपकते
तुम कुछ ऐसा केह देती
और मे कुछ वैसा सुन जाता
कि राह चलते जो इक मोड़ अति
तुम इक राह पकड़ती
और दुसरे से हम निकल जाते।

  1. may be someday you'll be able to picture out, why the trajectories collided and then parted.and that day even if u had the chance to go back and change the coordinates of the time axis, you would not. may be, u would want to let things happen just the way they happened.. that day, you'll look back n smile. i pray you find that day soon.
    and the close of the verse makes a deep impact. keep writing.

Long Winter Chill

If I could do a Neruda,
You would have smelt of summer roses
And Autumn pine.
There would have been sheer love
Of the kind that causes our hearts to ache
And loneliness bordering the divine.
You would have had so many secrets
Welling up as in a girly giggle
And so few friends who would hear them all.I am no Neruda
I can't paint you a Summer breeze
Amidst this long winter chill.

Ring Ring - Take that Call!

Raj? (In mild annoyance)
Yes Princess?

Its a Sunday baby. Why do you have to answer all the calls on your phone?

This is my personal phone babe. I don't have too many people calling on this one.

Agreed. But this is the third time you are walking out of the room with your phone. It annoys me.
I am sorry Princess. But I will have to take all the calls. 
Raj..%#$@@**.(Major Annoyance)


---Silence-----


Princess?
What??

Do you remember Anju? 
That girl who went for a divorce?
Yes
What about her?
Two years ago, on one such Sunday, she had given me a call. I was surprised to see her call, since, we were not really thick. 

Hmm.. what happened? Did she want to marry you or what?
At first there was a lot of silence on the other side. I thought that her kid had dialed out accidentally. And then I plugged my other ear and said Hello again. I felt as if I could hear a sob, and then a whisper.  I did not disconnect the call. I just told her that I know something is not right. I told her that I will hear her ou…

Hush

You don't have to tell me.
I just know.
Its that little sniffle that comes through
The unexplained pauses
The slow responsesI know when you call
Just because you needed to cry.
