Teri Aahat

Teri Aahat by Sandeep Silas 'deep'

Your Rustle

You skirted my dwelling today as you came to my city

My breath escapes me again and again as I hear your rustle

 

Once again shadows start floating on the mirror of my heart

Those who don’t have time to stop, they disappear with ease

 

I do not wait anymore for meetings of love

Or for sweet conversations and wet nights

 

I don’t know where the environment is leading me

My feet stop no more, listening to voices of this world

Unsaid Conversation

 

Do not become like an unsaid conversation

Sometime, you must say something to me

 

Do not get lost like we meet strangers

You must stay with me for sometime

 

Do not hide like unknown feelings

Bring one day, your love to your lips

 

Do not sleep like an unseen dream

Fire the sky with a spark before you go

 

Do not get lost like an unwritten story

Narrate something to the world, then go

 

Do not go, leaving me, with eyes closed

‘Deep’, you must always keep looking at me

Plain Thought

Plain the thought or laden with nectar

I never let you be away from my thought

 

You laughed while you spoke or kept quiet

Each mood of yours, I filled within my breath

 

You met me with open arms or like a statue

I never let my eyes leave the direction you were

 

You touched me or became captive of distances

I, but, always saw love within your eyes

If, O God…

If, O God, all that could have been mine

I too would have lived a life like You

 

Would have seen each one and heard everyone

Everyday I would have sat in Judgement upon each one

 

I would have lived in every heart, within each soul

Every direction would have resounded with my name

 

These talks of the world, best thrive here only

I will come up to heaven and meet You in embrace

Yearning

I lived through the days of life in yearning

This Sun would have set sans your thoughts

 

I was gifted a treasure since I found you

An excuse I found to preen myself each day

 

To say some words I found a friend

To write some letters I began a tradition

 

Your coming made a blossom bloom

One storm subsided and another arose

Indifference

I bowed before my indifferent beloved and saw

I reached the heights of love again and again and saw

 

I called out to her so much more and saw

I went on burning in my own fire of love and saw

 

I kept on stopping, stooping, and stifling myself and saw

I kept on writing letters of love, pouring out my heart and saw

 

I held hands, walked along the road and saw

Amidst prayer I opened my eyes in Church and saw

 

Go on lighting a bed of embers in front of my feet

Keep on sewing my chest with threads of pain

 

Go on, make my destination again a mirage

I have the heart of a sculptor, I am unstoppable

You

When the night is dark, you shine like the moon

Why not then, a storm rise up within my heart ?

 

You my beloved Piya, who resides in the clouds, tell me

Why you lit ‘deep’ on earth, and gave Moon to the sky?

 

“YOU” by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in Saada Khayal (2009)
