And as she fell on him,
he was bound to her,
Infinity seemed their only home……
If only sound could travel through nothingness,
We would have known,
The pain the Moon feels,
Distance would never reduce,
Between her and the Earth,
Maybe that’s why its craters,
Tell a story,
Perennial, endless, infinite,
Sound can be underrated sometimes……
Dear Miss yet to come,
How are you? It’s been a long time since I wrote to you. Seasons have changed, the birds have flown from their nests, the old dilapidated house at the corner, remember? That couldn’t stand longer. It fell down. Everything’s been fine with me lately and I hope with you too. But we are too humans and as humans and the perfect law of nature, we change.
I don’t know why there is this feeling inside me that’s not letting me do anything. Usually it doesn’t make its presence felt. But when it does, I find sadness in almost anything. And you know how I rarely get sad, a little too emotional yes but rarely sad. Even the guitar lying next to me doesn’t inspire me to play it and get over it, the writing pad too, just growls at me with this I don’t know, a face that just doesn’t seem friendly. I sometimes wonder what it would feel like to share with you all this in person when you are lying along me in the open sky and wondering why the stars fall, who holds the moon up in the sky, why does a doughnut have a hole, or maybe why our hearts beat so slow when we are together. Remember the day, when you were sad about something that you didn’t remember. It’s something like that. The funny thing about it is that, how much I try to avoid it, it just comes bouncing back. The only thing sometimes I need is a your touch and not just physical, the intimacy we shared, mind, space and later the body that really was just another tune that we together create. I don’t know what’s difficult. Waiting for you or this thought that there is somewhere you as well, maybe waiting for me. Or have you found someone too good……
I wish you have that palm for me so that I may fill it with sometimes my hand, the flowers that your body absorbs so spectacularly or maybe sometimes this universe, our universe, our little world….
Waiting for you….
With lots of love.
I don’t want to die.
Rather live with you.
Everyday, each moment,
When I get to live two lives,
The one that’s meant for you,
And the one for us,
I want to live with you,
As long as the day shines,
And the days after them….
What happens when two broken souls come together?
She had asked him while they walked along the beach.
I don’t know. He said.
Maybe that’s why the sea touches its shores,
Only to bring back messages unread,
In bottles left to float,
Sometimes shells sealed with tears of the sea,
Nothing ever stays in its belly,
Nothing is ever broken,
They all fit someplace,
He had said.
कई दर्द छुपा रखे हैं मैंने,
यह जो सिलवटें हैं इस जिस्म पर मेरे,
ज़रा आना कभी फुर्सत से मेरी चौखट पर तुम भी किसी रोज़,
कुछ दफनाने हैं जो बच गए थे वो टुकड़े मेरे……..
No one sees the pain within,
The ones that stay in spaces of me,
Come to me, maybe once in a while,
Some pieces of mine are still left to be buried………
कभी हस के भी मिला करो,
इतना भी गुरूर ठीक नहीं,
सताया इतना करो,
जितना बर्दाश्त हो सके,
पत्थर की मूरत अक्सर टूट जाती है,
नेक हो जो इरादे ही सही,
मजबूर ना कीजिए हमें ए पारियों की रानी,
वरना फरिश्ते हम भी नहीं….
कभी आईना देखा,
तो कभी झाँका गेहराइयों मैं,
आसमानों की मुलायम पर्दों मैं देखा,
तो कभी समुन्दर के अनंत मैं,
घर ढूंढ रहा था मैं,
ना जाने कहाँ,
ना जाने कब,
अक्स जो तेरा गिरा था मुझ पर,
वो सर्द किसी रात मैं,
ना जाने कैसे,
ना जाने कब,
इस काफिर को अपना आशियाना मिल गया……
The heat had started melting off the skin,
As the flames fed on her bones,
The memories, photographs and the days so good,
Mortal is body, maybe the mind,
Play games in times likes these,
You become strong,
Hold off some tears,
Maybe they are in a better place,
As dust covers up what’s left,
And you try to find someone that existed till now,
Maybe the body is mortal,
Or the universe unsettled,
How else would the Sun,
Die to see,
Earth Be born again,
She wore a scarf,
And a smile,
She took my breath,
All in a second,
She was in a hurry,
With bags so heavy,
Running to someplace,
Unknown to me,
And so did the years,
One day I saw her again,
In that old little cafeteria,
She is way out of my league,
Was my innocent assumption,
She looked at me,
And I looked away,
A man may sometimes lose all his senses,
I looked back again,
And I immediately had a universal flight,
She came up and sat next to me,
I was Shivering like the baddest earthquake,
She asked my name,
And I shyly said,
This is Harsh for you Miss,
Miss… She had started saying,
And I was lost in her voice so clear,
We planned to meet Somedays later,
Exchanged numbers and some awkward pleasantries,
I was lost in her thoughts,
So much as much I slept with shoes on,
She had called later in the night,
And had ended with a sweet goodnight,
With each passing day,
And with each night,
It was impossible to stay away from her sight,
Everyday she came in a dress so good,
Sometimes in a gown,
Or in her cool shorts,
She would swing her hair around,
And would let me sleep under their cool dusk,
Sometimes she would be angry,
Of things I would say out of being stingy,
Then I would hold her hands,
Hum in her ears,
Of songs she loved,
She would quickly let go,
And would hold me tight,
As I swing her around,
Like the earth does with her moon,
Stare at her and make her go mad,
Like she’s the one in my mind,
And in the heart,
And all places other,
I would look at her while she made breakfast,
Can I eat you,
Would sometimes say,
And she would run at me,
With a burning spoon,
Let me help you with myself,
What time it would be,
What would be the days,
When we make a home so cozy,
A little of me,
A little of you,
Together we would make the best couple,
Sometimes a walk in the park,
Maybe a swim in the lake,
Or an ice cream in the middle of night,
So much and so many,
With you it would be all so creamy……..
Sometimes the men out there are too shy to reach out to you. We may be Superman during the times we are in a virtual world. But we do have a heart attack when we have to talk to you. So, please go out there and reach out to us. You’ll be amazed at how a sweet boy can quickly transform with you into someone you probably never knew.(there is not always a motive behind us being too nice. This I can say for me and atleast men like me. 🙂 )
The men who don’t look you in the eyes while you walk past them or don’t look at you to make you uncomfortable or the ones who will open the gates for you and would listen to you when you want. It’s genuine compliment with us, always. Please don’t take it as our motive for other things.
The men out there.
Can you please hook this button up?
I cannot reach it.
She said while he tied his laces.
As he came closer to her.
I wish I could stay like this forever.
Looking at you and nothing else.
She pinched him.
What happened to you.
Where were you lost.
Nothing. I was just remembering the way to the venue.
She held his hands.
As he trembled with fear.
What if I cannot.
We’ll start over. She said.
They sat under the moonlight.
Looking at the stars.
The night had played their favourite kind of music.
Inaudible and loud…..
He slammed the door shut.
The night was rough.
He woke up to a bad headache,
And a cup of perfect hot coffee.
His mind is like a maze of possibilities.
She is the path to his center…
Starting with a new series Him and Her. Let’s see how it turns out.
