Two strangers

It was a night lonely and cold
While I lay in my bed chatting with a man of a different mould,
What started as weird became interesting,
With every minute my eyes skipped resting.

He called up and made me laugh
A promising story with a great second half,
We argued, he teased, I bared it all
I took the plunge and went for the free fall.

Shared my mirror and the self doubt
He promised to kiss to kill it out,
There will be no pretense, he said no lies
With a vow to meet we said our good byes.

When the day came, I wasn’t so sure
Forget about him, what if I am left asking for more,
He assured me and asked me not to fear
What could possibly go so wrong? He said it loud and clear.

He caught my eye, I skipped a beat
I wasn’t ready as yet to get off my seat,
He sat down, gave me company
Relaxed my nerves while my heart played symphony.

He looked amazed and startled from a distance
Wasn’t sure what to make of this acquaintance,
He took me to his land and made me see
Where he works and what makes him he.

He made the move to shut the world out
I squirmed at the thought of the rules we may flout,
Fear, excitement, emotions I was abound
Could hear faint familiar song in the background.

He took my hand, asked me for a dance
Waltzed in my life with that one glance,
He said, How I feel, do you want to know?
Read my eyes and moved his lips real slow.

Took me in his arms and read me like a braille
I tried to stop but my intent did fail,
His gentle strokes took my breath away
Two strangers became one that day.

Chalo ek baar phir se…

Chalo ek baar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono
Na main tumse koi ummeed rakhoon dilnavaazi ki
Na tum meri taraf dekho galat andaaz nazaron se
Na mere dil ki dhadkan ladkhadaaye meri baaton mein
Na zaahir ho tumhaari kashm-kash ka raaz nazaron se
Chalo ek baar phir se,ajnabi ban jaye ham dono

Tumhen bhi koi uljhan rokti hai peshkadmi se
Mujhe bhi log kehte hain, ki yeh jalve paraaye hain
Mere hamraah bhi rusvaaiyaan hain mere maajhi ki
Tumhaare saath bhi guzri hui raaton ke saaye hain
Chalo ek baar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono

Taarruf rog ho jaaye to usko bhoolnaa behtar
Taalluk bojh ban jaaye to usko todnaa achchha
Voh afsaana jise anjaam tak laana na ho mumkin
Use ek khoobsoorat mod dekar chhodna achchha
Chalo ek baar phir se, ajnabi ban jaye ham dono

Ek ajnabi..

Thi woh raat ek ajnabi si, ek musafir ne is dil par jab dastak di,
Khola jo maine jhijhak se woh darwaza, door kahin se usne phir awaaz di.

Baaton ki paheliyon mein uljhaata raha, meri nadaniyon par hasaata raha,
Adhuri meri is kahani mein, apni khas jagah banata raha.

Sataya usne, tadpaya usne, par na kabhi manaya usne,
le kar apni baahon mein, kuch soye khwabon ko jagaya usne.

Dabe paav is safar ki jo shuruaat huyi, waqt chalta gaya aur main tham gayi,
Jo poocha maine the ab tak tum kahan, woh bola muskura ke mein hun ek ajnabi.

Lagta hai…

Aaya tha bavandar jo tammanaon ka woh thehar gaya lagta hai

Lage the jo kadam dagmagane woh sambhal gaye lagta hai

Mushkil hua tha mann ko jo samjhaana woh khud-ba-khud samajh gaya lagta hai

Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue

Don’t know when I’ve been so blue
Don’t know what’s come over you
You’ve found someone new
And don’t it make my brown eyes blue

I’ll be fine when you’re gone
I’ll just cry all night long, say it isn’t true
And don’t it make my brown eyes blue

Tell me no secrets, tell me some lies
Give me no reasons, give me alibis
Tell me you love me and don’t let me cry
Say anything but don’t say goodbye

He said…

The silence is deafening
The wait incessant
Dreams are ready to fade
In the glow of a new day
He said he is gonna go
But I am still hoping for him to stay

Have forgotten what love felt like
His words, his eyes, his touch
I m losing it all
Trading for a hollow life
He said he is ready to leave
But I am hoping for a change of mind

The sky is barren
Trust lingers in the corner
Patience, an unknown virtue
Holding me from within
He said he won’t be back
But I am still waiting…

Hota hi hoga na…

Sunehre khwabon ki mehfil mein, kuch meethey bol par,
Chahat ki dhun gungunati hoon main,
Neend se jaga deta hai woh jab, sehmti hun main
par ehsaas to usse bhi hota hi hoga na…

Chehakti hoon main, mehakti hoon main,
Uske ird gird behakti hoon main,
Muqaddar se rubaroo kara deta hai woh jab, Simat-ti hoon main,
par dil to uska bhi machalta hi hoga na…
