Mysteriously mysterious... this Love!

"Dont become a forgotten memory... you are the one I never wanna miss thinking about." As she said these words, tears dripped from her eyes. He couldn't do anything else than to hug her tightly and wipe away her tears with the sleeves of his white shirt.  Only prayers and nothing else slipped from his lips as he watched her disappear behind the doors of the operation theatre. Sometimes it's a person for a lifetime that we want to live with... but time slips away like sand and moments disappear in thin air. I wonder what makes two people stay in love like their life wouldnt end ever... May be life is not meant for anything else...than to realise at end that we only craved for the three words.... for one person... and the heart stops to beat... breaths collapse... in one moment called death. Souls turn lonely....lonelier with every minute. Sometimes there is so much to talk about but no one to....And sometimes it's easier to be silent tha

मैंने सुना है तुम मर चुके हो...

मैंने सुना है तुम मर चुके हो... ऊपर से कट चके हो, नीचे से गल चुके हो. हवा से रूठके, साँसें लेना भूल चुके हो, सुना है, तुम मर चुके हो. धूप में झुलस के, छाँव में कहीं छुप चुके हो, सुना है कि, तुम मर चुके हो. करवटों में नींदें खो के, ख़यालों में  मुड़ चुके हो, सुना है, शायद तुम मर चुके हो. क्यों इतना बदल चुके हो? तड़पते हो, या तड़प चुके हो, पर सुना है, तुम मर चुके हो. कोई क़फ़न खरीदा है? या दूसरों पे ही, ये भी काम छोड़ा है, सुना तो है, कि तुम मर चुके हो. दफ़ा करो अब इन यादों को, इनमें रखा ही क्या है! हाँ, पर सुना है कि तुम मर चुके हो. क्यों तुम्हें याद करुँ? आख़िर दिया ही क्या है तुमने मुझे? पर सच है क्या ...कि तुम मर चुके हो? ये  ख़ामोशी अब सहन से बाहर है, कुछ कह ही दो.... यही कि सब झूठ है... कि तुम मर चुके हो. शायद ये ख़याल सबका बेक़ार है, तुम मर गए, फिर भी कहीं ज़िंदा हो, सुनती हूँ रोज़ यही कि तुम मर चुके हो. यक़ीन होता नहीं, फिर भी रोज़ पूछती हूँ, क्या सचमुच तुम मर चुके हो? लोग हँसते हैं मेरे पूछने पे, कहते है शायद तुम ज़िंदा हो, रो देती

I wish...

I wished you'll say 'I love you' before I did... but the minutes have become so heavy that time has started to stand still... the glimpse of what we might be has flashed my mind often...  I tremble with this unheard melody ... may be I should wait a little more... to hear how my name would sound each time when your lips touch each other to call my name. Strange is this gaze... that captures time like a photograph...posing us in a lifetime- freezing smile, when I see my own reflection in your there is no one else in this world but you and me. Can ... can this be the forever that i have always dreamed of... can this be the eternity that I  had always wished for... can this time... we might be we instead of you and me??? Image :

Funny dumb love

I never expect you to love me but then... who permits someone to love or be loved? But the fact is I always knew love happens unexpectedly... but I always thought it would never happen with me! But... It's so funny, I have started to feel things for you...  Your absence causes turmoil inside. Your presence makes me feel overjoyed... Even if I see you at the bus stand from far away... You become my smile... I know you cant love me because, I am the 5.30 a.m. train and you are the 11 a.m. flight. Am the bird that starts chirping when it's still time for the sun to rise and you are the sun that follows.  But... Am never tired thinking of us together ... May be you never noticed how much dumb I become, when you are around.... May be I am the only one to feel my helplessness to ignore you. (C) Ravinder Kaur  #lovemakesmedumb
