Nigahein nigahon se mila kar to dekho,
Naye logon se rishta bane ke to dekho,
Hasratein dil me chupane se kya faida,
Apne honth hila kar to dekho
Aasmaan simat jayega aagosh mein,
Chahat ki baahein faila kar to dekho
Dil ki baat kar ke to dekho…

Airtel's latest (advert) offering. Nice. Me likes. Senti. My types.

It was a night like no other
My muse, shaped like a three month fetus
Nestled in its womb

Would you believe me if I were to tell you that
It fell on earth, just like that, out of the blue
And that instinctively I stepped back
Only to pick it up a while later (with gnawing curiosity)
Nay, it wasn't particularly heavy, more like a cardboard, with lots of glitter on it

It seemed so perfectly normal to
Run towards the sea
Dragging it roughly with a string

I am befuddled as to why
I flung it into the vast expanse before me
How I wish you were there too, in this secluded part of my world
You'd sit on the sand besides me, and we'd watch it bob gently on the calm waters

Must I mention here
I dreamt of the crescent moon a few nights ago?

Current Music: Annie's Song - John Denver
(A true beauty, this one is)
