गुस्ताख़ी

Posted on

बुझाते जाना चिराग़ को, तेरे इश्क की जिसने रोशनी की है।

बरपा है क़हर कयामत पर, तूने बात ही बे-ढंगी की है।

बड़े बेबाक़ हुए आज हुज़ूर, बेवफ़ाई की धमकी दी है।

ना-गवार है ऐसा तालुक्क तुझसे, ये गलती नहीं गुस्ताख़ी की है।

It’s indeed important to have freedom to express yourself in a relationship. It’s okay to be quiet when the other one is angry or pissed. It can be fixed later. Overlooking minor things to keep it smooth is the key. But, it is absolutely unacceptable to utter the declaration of betrayal. Whatsoever be the situation, mood, stress or anything under the sun, no one deserves to hear this. This one is hard to heal..maybe it never does..

सवालों का सबब

Posted on

मुझसे ना पूछ मेरे सवालों का सबब,
तेरे जवाबों में बस ये रात कट जायें।

कहे–अनकहे ख्यालात मेरे,
तेरे ज़हन से, बे–तकल्लुफ़ बंट जायें।

दरमियान अपने दूरियां बेशुमार हैं,
दे सदा, ये कम-ज़र्फ़ दूरियां घट जायें।

बे–अदब निगाह तेरी, मिलती नहीं मेरी नजर से,
जो ठहरे दोनो साथ, वक्त सिमट जायें।

मुझसे ना पूछ मेरे सवालों का सबब,
तेरे जवाबों में बस ये रात कट जायें।

This is for the time when he/she asks you the reason for your random questions. Sometimes, it’s the concern, sometimes it’s curiosity. You may want to be a part of their life by asking these questions and live it with them, even from the distance. But then there are times, when you just ask the questions to keep the conversation going. In this moment what’s important is not what is being said in the convesation, but the sheer CONVERSATION. Keep it flowing!

शब-बाश

Posted on

वक्त निकाल, बैठ कभी तन्हाई में।

हो तू मेरी, मैं तेरी परछाई में।।

हो जाएंगे शब-बाश, चढ़ते महताब के तले,

बस सर्द हवा में, तेरी, गर्म सांसें सुनाई दें।।

Glossary:
शब-बाश = staying overnight, cherishing nights of togetherness
महताब = चांद, moon

This is for the times when we realise that though we have known each other for years, it’s always interesting to learn more about the other one.
Also to point out, no time is enough to have each other and no time is less to cherish the bond.

We are busy with what we are doing at all other fronts but cherishing the bond is relaxing and celebratory.

Celebrations must not cease!

खो गए सवालात

Posted on

खो गए सवालात, तेरे नाम पे लगाए थे।

शिकवे – गिले कई हमने, दिल में दफनाए थे।

जो उतरे तेरी नजरों में, बस पिघलते रहे हम

मानो, जुगनू से पूछा – “तुम जगमगाए थे?”।।

We may have a hundred questions for someone close to us that we seek answers to. These questions, or grudges can pile up over time and compound due to the distance. May get a bit ugly too.

But as soon as you sit down – face to face – in peace with your coffee, things fall in place. You may realise that nothing was actually required to be fixed (at least not as huge a mess as you anticipated it to be).

Give yourselves some time.

The key – Just keep the communication going.
