What is it that kept us apart?

Image
As I walk down the aisle, may be never to meet you again,
The question arise in mind – what is it that kept us apart?

What is a relation made up of?
The sense of responsibility - and may be
A set of rules to trail
Words to comfort the other
And trust without fail.

We were responsible for sure and followed all the rules,
We were good at words and trusted each other like fools

Then what was missing
What held back the heart?

What is it that kept us apart?

As I walk down the aisle, may be never to meet you again,
I see the budding flowers we planted Christmas night
‘This will grow with our love,’ You said holding me tight.

We laughed on similar jokes
We danced on same tune
We loved the peaceful sea
And a walk on the dune

Every string was strong
Still something went wrong

As I walk down the aisle, may be never to meet you again,
I remember those days of togetherness
The laughters, the tears, the joys, the anger
I know we will not be sharing this
any longer...

The question is not for you

What lies beneath the words…?

Image
You say this but you mean that
Your words follow a different stat
I try to link the set of cords
What lies beneath the words…?

A beauty that is seen
A music that is heard
A gain that is enjoyed
A pain that is suffered
You express your feelings to me
But I fail to pick the odds
What lies beneath the words….?

Your eyes depict loneliness
Your lips tend to smile
Your hands look for warmth
Your legs tend to exile

You are unsure of what you want
And so your words don’t count

What is in and what is out
Are two strangers in a doubt
Let me reach both your worlds
Let me see what lies beneath your words…?

"Galat Tha"

Dhoondhti apni manjilon tak pahuchne ki raah
Apne liye, sirf apne liye jeene ki chah
Apne hi sapno ke tootne ka dar
Kitna swarth bhara hai mere andar

Aaj ehsaah hota hai ki shayad
Eis swarth se bhare man me
Kisi ke pratibimb ko sajaaana
Galat tha…
‘Main’ ki eis ladaai me
‘Tum’ ko apnaana
Galat tha…

Haq nahi tha mujhe uske jeevan me
Apni jagah banaane ka
Uske sunder haseen mehel ki taraf
Apne ajnabee kadam badhaane ka

Aaj ehsaah hota hai ki shayad
Use pane ki aarjoo
Usko apna maan kar jeena
Galat tha...
‘Main’ ko ‘tum’ ke laayak samajhna
Galat tha…
