2684 : Poetry


I have said this many times before...shall say this again...my entire love and understanding of poetry comes from my music. Music and songwriting has shaped me entirely....my entirety and my whole life, possibly.

Its one of the real truths I know in this life.

Whether its an Abhang by Tai (Kishore Amonkar) or a Pink Floyd (to whom I owe my entire education) or Gulzar......

I learnt my love for life from songs. My epitaph should be a song. Remember that :-).

As I write this....the boombox speaker behind is starting up "Mar Jaawan from Madhur Bhandarkar's Fashion....one of my all-time favorites.

Soche dil ke aisa kaash ho,
Tujko ek nazar meri talaash ho
Jaise khwab hain ankhon mein base meri,
waise neendon mein silvetey padi teri

I wish that someday even this shall play out,
Wherein you shall be yearning for one glance for (me) round and about,
Just like the dreams that are dancing on my eyes,
(I hope) that (your blissful) sleep is creased (made uneven) by my cries.....
