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.

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 😉

दरिया डूबा, जिस रोज़

Posted on

अधर नज़रों से उनकी, बात होती रही। 

वो साथ बैठी रही, रात होती रही।  

लहरों ने बताया कि दरिया डूबा, जिस रोज़ 

लबों से उनके, बरसात होती रही। 

This is for the times when you are lost in her voice. When you are sitting close but the glances are being exchanged for very short intervals just because you know that if you look into each others’ eyes for more than that, the passion would spike which knows no limits.

That being said, the way she’s uttering those words, they are no less than a melody, you’d love to listen to all night long, all day long. the words that are music, that are rhythmic, like the droplets on a rainy day, refreshing, pure and just adorable.

Cherish these times for they, definitely, are rare.

फ़राग़ ही होगा

Posted on

सन्नाटे में दमका, वो अक्स नहीं, चराग़ ही होगा।

क़त्ल कर निकला वस्ल में यार का, ना कोई सुराग ही होगा। 

वो नायाब सोम है किसी और जहां के मयख़ाने की,

जो चख सके उसे लब मेरे, तो फ़राग़ ही होगा।

Glossary –
अक्स = reflection or image
चराग़ = oil lamp
वस्ल = meeting or union
सोम = alcohol
फ़राग़ = repose, freedom from care or business
