ग़लतफहमी

Posted on

माथे पर शिकन, सूरत मेरी सेहमी थी।

उंगलियों में कसक, सांसों में गेहमा-गेहमी थी।

जो समेटा उसने आगोश में, पल भर में बिखरी मैं,

“धड़कन ना बढ़ेगी” – ग़लतफहमी थी।

This for is for the moment when you’re about to lean in for your first hug. That first kiss.

It’s not just embracing the body but the emotion and the warmth as well. It’s not the fingers running across that bare skin or the lips dancing on their counterparts, it’s the passion that drives the moment.

You live this moment.

If this moment doesn’t bring goosebumps, I wonder what else would.

आयत

Posted on

चला जो सिलसिला-ए-वस्ल, रिवायत हो गई।

पढ़ना था जिसे किताब की तरह, वो आयत हो गई।

वो शख़्स जो ख़्याल है मेरी जुम्मे की शाम का,

पल मांगे उस से , सबाहशब्ब की इनायत हो गई।

Glossary –
वस्ल = meeting or union
रिवायत = tradition
आयत = holy verse
जुम्मा = Friday
सबाह = Dawn
शब्ब = Night

When a casual date turns into a friendship that blossoms to a deep connect with someone who was just a random person earlier. This is the person who turns out to be the reason for you to look forward to your weekends.. and weekends turn into a bliss in his/her company.

Cheers to this transition 😉
