I had a horrible dream.. it was very sweet and enjoyable actually.. but it left me disturbed when I woke up, at the thought of my inner screwed up sense of love and relationship even if I’m outwardly very enlightened and intelligent about dealing with these matters now.. Anyway, I calmed myself by writing couplets and these are the choice couple out of half a dozen.. halfway decent I’d say
Chahat ke bazaar mein roz ek nayi chahat se dil behlaate hain..
Mohobbat ke deewano ka yaha koi kaam nahi
Perhaps not self explanatory, cuz I had to actually explain it to the couple of people who read it.. here chah carries its literal meaning ‘want’. So what it’s trying to say is that the heart is a jitterbug.. chanchal you know.. it gets attracted to something new everyday.. it gets obsessed with something new everyday.. and it’s very selfish.. the heart wants what the heart wants.. and these wants change everyday as old attractions fade and new ones develop..
Mohobbat here refers to love, which is eternal, not limited to lovers, flowing in all directions, maybe more concentrated towards some people, but it’s not selfish.. it’s a positive feeling.. how can it be negative when there are no expectations.. there are expectations in relationships.. not in love.. it’s boundless..
Anyway.. here’s another one.. self explanatory
Shamaa ke bazaar mein parwaano ka sauda kar aye..
Iss khel ko yaaro hum uski chaukhat par khatm kar aye..
Boht laanat di dil k saudagro ne..
Hum dil k tukdo ka ikk aur taufa kubool kar aye
