कुछ देर ठहर

रुस्वा तो तूने करना ही है, कुछ देर तो ठहर।

बा-दस्तूर वस्ल-ए-यार मुमक़िन नहीं, कुछ देर तो ठहर।

जुदाई का आलम अगले मोड़ से है झाँक रहा,

झपक भर का ये साथ छीन नहीं, कुछ देर तो ठहर।

“When you know that you two have different goals, responsibilities and approach to life: leading to a separation. but you still want to live one more moment with each other.”

अरसा हुआ…

अरसा हुआ तुझे नज़रें चुराये,

बहरहाल, चाय के प्याले में तेरा ही अक्स है.

पर

मयस्सर नहीं अब हमसे आंखें चार करना,

ना तेरे इंतज़ार में आज ये शख्स है.

Its been a while since then. You do invade my dreams, but not my soul. Anymore.

मोहब्बत ना कर

इतनी मोहब्बत ना कर ऐ ज़माने,

कितनी लम्बी है ये रात, कौन जाने?

मायूसियां छा जाएँगी तेरी तन्हाईयों में,

इसका इल्म है तुझे, तू माने.. ना माने.

A TAJ for You!

A TAJ for You!

I’ll build a Taj for you, Yes! A Taj for you.
People who get this honor are few.
But I pray none to get this honor,
for its equally painful as it is true.
I never thought to experience such a stale dew.
I’ll build a Taj for you, Yes! A Taj for you.
My Taj will and won’t resemble the existing one.
That one is a funeral architecture.
Mine will be the funeral of our friendship
It will represent my heart’s fracture.
But still it will have a lovely view.
I’ll build a Taj for you, Yes! A Taj for you.
The symbol of the existing one is affection,
while that of mine will be agony.
Inside it, there will be death causing rains,
Even if the weather is burning sunny.
In my veins the same burning sun is passing through.
I’ll build a Taj for you, Yes! A Taj for you.
My Taj’s lake will represent our relationship’s murder,
as it will be blood filled till its crust.
My Taj will also have the gems embedded walls.
These gems will be the pieces of my broken trust.
Moreover, these gems won’t be just a few.
I’ll build a Taj for you, Yes! A Taj for you.
The lustre in minars of my Taj will be ice,
to symbolize the cold-blooded murder of our friendship.
On the top of its dome, you’ll see an arrow,
conveying the pain from such a relationship.
For others, my Taj will be a clue.
I’ll build A TAJ FOR YOU, just for you…
