Hardest Goodbye

Lonely girl sitting alone
One day, you will understand,
Would realize why I did what I did,
Sometimes we meet the right people at the wrong times in our life;
Perfect ones that we only later realize,
If I get to choose, I would never want to lose you,
My heart breaks, when I look at you,
No matter how much I care or
how much I want to keep you safe,
I keep losing you,
The cruel time never changes its pace,
But you know that I know,
We have to go our separate ways,
With love for each other, to someone else’ embrace,
I wish, this moment just stops and forgets to pass by,
Coz I can’t see you going away,
You are my hardest goodbye…

Tere Jaane Ke Baad

silhouette of a man sitting
जाने क्या क्या गुज़रती है दिल पे,
जब तुम आ जाती हो नज़रों के सामने,
कह भी नहीं पाते,
और बयान करने को अलफ़ाज़ नहीं मिलते,

तुम पे कोई हक़ भी नहीं,
ना ही तुम से कोई रिश्ता है,
पर जब तुम दूर जाती हो,
गुमसुम सा दिल लिए फिरते हैं,

अब ये आलम है की,
खुद का हाल पूछता हूँ,
तेरे आने से पहले और
तेरे जाने के बाद…


A metro compartment
ऐसे जो तुम्हारी नज़रें मुझ पे रुकी हैं,
और फिर मुझसे नज़रें मिलने पे इधर उधर देखने लगी हैं,
कुछ कहना है क्या इन्हे या बस ये ऐसे ही शरारती हैं,
छूने की जरुरत भी नहीं,
ये नज़रों की मोहब्बत है, इन्हे जिस्मों की जरुरत नहीं,
तुम बैठे रहो ऐसे ही,
इन लम्हों की खातिर, थोड़ी देरी ही सही,

फिर चली जाओगी तुम अपने रास्ते, बिना कुछ कहे,
और जो मेरी नज़रें तुम्हारे साथ चलने लगे,
अलविदा कहने,
मैं कुछ नहीं कहूंगा, तुम भी कुछ न कहना,
मुड़कर बस एक बार, मुस्कुराकर इस मुलाक़ात को यूँही इसी
हसीन मोड़ पर ख़त्म कर देना…

Wait, Wait and Wait

a person standing and waiting
Nobody told me that love is all about the wait,
endless and endless wait,
It’s about looking at your mobile for thousand times,
to see that one message,
but that message never comes,
It’s about lonely nights,
when you have so much to say,
but there is no one to listen,
It’s about getting soaked in rain,
and wishing somebody would worry,
but nobody won’t,
You look out there,
for someone to knock on your heart’s door,
and you just wait, wait and wait…

I Just Need You

woman looking at phone in front of window
I get angry when I see you spending time with others,
Come on! That was my time,
I know you have friends, family and work,
But I want to be on your mind,
I know I am possessive but I am not ashamed of it,
I want you only for me, don’t care what others think about it,
I have a habit of being extremely choosy, so I pick you,
Call me whiny or needy but I just need you,

I won’t say I am perfect, actually I am far from it,
I have a weakness to get attached badly, I can’t help it,
Please don’t get mad or irritated, I am just made this way,
I do what I feel is right, and speak what my heart say,
Sometimes I talk on and on, so that you don’t hang the phone,
Sometimes I go silent, fighting my fears on my own,
I don’t worry about many things, I only fear of losing you,
for every other problem, I know how to get through,

So stay with me as much as you can,
I don’t mind if you talk to me 24 X 7,
I know I am talking rubbish, you are a busy person,
Your mind has million things going on,
You have many important people to meet;
Big goals to complete and exotic places to be,
Here I am, my heart knows only one thing to do,
My world starts with you…and it ends with you…
