क्या होता…

सोच रहे है,
तुम और हम साथ होते
तो ज़िन्दगी का ठिकाना क्या होता.

प्यार में तुम भी, लाचार होते
तो दिल का फ़साना क्या होता.

केह देते गर हम अपने दिल कि बात,
तो जुर्माना क्या होता.

याद तो तुम्हे कर लेते
पर सोच रहे है, बहाना क्या होता.


सोच रहे है,
तुम और हम साथ होते
तो इस चांदनी रात का नज़ारा क्या होता.

प्यार में हमारे, तुम क़ुर्बान होते
तो इस दिल कि खुशियो का किनारा क्या होता.

गर गर्दिश में न होते, हमारे नसीब के सितारे
तो जवाब तुम्हारा क्या होता.

पर जब किसी का नहीं हुआ
तो ये वक़्त हमारा क्या होता.


Nothing means nothing

You smile at me
When we cross each other’s path
And then you don’t say more than a hello
When we are two feet apart. 
Amidst the struggles of life
We sometimes share a laugh
And then you disappear from my life
Making my whole existence, half.

You pretend to be upset with me
When I don’t call you for months
And when I do, you say you are busy
But you don’t call back, even once.

We share useless secrets
Swearing to protect them with our lives
But we don’t talk about the simplest things
On which a friendship thrives.

Some days that we spend together
Are better than my entire weeks
You and I together just feel right
We laugh and cry; even our silence speaks.

But then on some days
You don’t even want to meet
And you act like this friendship,
Or whatever this is, to you, means nothing.

I am tired of decoding your signals,
Always thinking about what your actions imply
Tired of being anxious all the time,
Constantly wondering what your inactions signify.

Between your occasional care
And unmatched apathy
Like a pendulum, I sway;
Let’s just say
Nothing means nothing;
It’s better that way.


I love you like madness

crazy loveI know we are not meant to last forever
And that this will someday end;
I know the end will be painful and hard
But I still want to go ahead.
I know I’ll regret this later
That I’ll look back and curse myself;
I know that the heartbreak will be unbearable
But I still want to take this chance.

I know that logic doesn’t support this
That we are up against some difficult odds;
And I know that this is a stupid thing to do
But I want to take the jump, even if I might fall.

I want to make the mistake
I want to do this wrong
I want to feel the pain
I want to be involved.

So what if we don’t have a future?
Future is not where we live
All that matters is the now
And I know I’ll be happy, if I have you with me.

So what if there will be heartbreak and pain?
All good things end with them
We will curse when we reach the finish line
But for the path we travel, we will always be glad.

And even if everything goes wrong
Even if we are fucked up and depressed
I would still want to be with you
Because I love you like madness.
