A Crush

Image
We often imagine perfect scenario. Let it be life or love. And anyone in his/her sublime adulthood is more influenced by the latter one. As a human its natural to feel inclination towards someone and hope to get reciprocated. Its something too natural to go through this phase at least once in our life. 
*BANG!!* A sudden loud thud on the door, brought me back from my fantasy to reality, sitting between sixty other students.
"May I come in?" A lean, moderately muscular boy came in, without waiting for any approval. Around 5'7, black messy hair, charcoal black eyes and a careless attitude. He simply went off to sit on a vacant seat in the third row and second column. All eyes followed him to his seat and then refocused on lecturer, except mine. 
It was Monday morning, a new session after the winter break and I was least interested in the middle aged guy teaching me something that I never wanted to study. As the lectured progressed, my attention refocused on that latest entrant …

Just another story

As I sat in an empty dark depressing bar alone, I ordered another drink..  *Bartender- Sorry nothing is left, you finished all the whisky*  *Me- THEN GET ME SOME RUM!*  as my shout echoed through the bar like a roar, shouting without lifting my head from being slumped over the table. I hid my face away in my own shadow, as I drank my sorrow in a gulp. The bartender slid the glass over to me. I grabbed it and gazed at it in a way like it now holds everything for me. I took a second to breathe the heaviness in the air before I knocked down that last glass. 
*The day he died.. I'll never forget what happened. It made a scar so deep in my mind like I have been branded.*
*If only.. IF ONLY I WAS STRONGER!! Stronger enough to get over this* Slamming the empty glass in my right hand on the table with a loud thud and shattering the glass into infinite pieces that made it a whole. Tears ran down my face, falling into the open cuts on my blood soaked hand. I stood up there kicking the seat…

वक़्त : A Dedication to college memories and friends!

वक़्त ना ठहरा, ना रुका ना सुना  बस चलता गया चलता गया  मैं इस जीवन का मुसाफ़िर  वक़्त के संग ढलता गया ढलता गया।  
बसंत बीते कई  पर ये चार ना बीत पाएंगे,  जब भी मुड़ देखूँगा इन्हे  बीते लम्हो की याद दिलाएंगे। 

वो जूनून, वो जोश, वो तमन्ना, वो उमंग  लेकर जिन्हे हम सब, चले थे एक दूजे के संग शायद संग तब ना थे, पर है संग अब  आज के बिछड़े हम, न जाने अब मिलेंगे कब।  
आज, मेरी अधूरी आशाओं और बिछड़ने के दर्द को  वो, अनसुना कर गया..   वक़्त ना ठहरा, ना रुका ना सुना  बस चलता गया चलता गया  मैं इस जीवन का मुसाफ़िर  वक़्त के संग ढलता गया ढलता गया।।
गम है बहुत और हम है लाचार  जिनके साथ बीते थे वो याराना पल   उनके बिना अब सब कुछ लगेगा भार  अब तो बस, है उन यादों का सहारा  जो इन 'चार सालों' में मिला  अब ना मिलेगा दोबारा। 
कामना है मेरी, केवल मेरे मन से  कि तू देना मेरा साथ,  हमेशा याद रहे वो सब  जो याद है आज,  कम से कम तू ना छोड़ जाना  जैसे हर कोई, मुझे छोड़ गया..  वक़्त ना ठहरा, ना रुका ना सुना  बस चलता गया चलता गया  मैं इस जीवन का मुसाफ़िर  वक़्त के संग ढलता गया ढलता गया।।

Thanks to everybody for being a par…
