भूल चुका हूँ मैं

तुझे भुलाने की कोशिश में
सब कुछ भूल चुका हूँ मैं ।१।

तेरे घर की पेचीदा गलियों में
सब सपने भूल चुका हूँ मैं ।२।

मंज़िल तक पहुंचा ही नहीं
और रस्ता भूल चुका हूँ मैं ।३।

आंसू तो अब सूख चुके हैं
हाँ हँसना भूल चुका हूँ मैं ।४।

था ज़माने में कोई शख़्स अमित
अब उसको भूल चुका हूँ मैं ।५।

  1. Translated to English by Reena

    I managed to forget you- at last
    I hear a voice say
    Amnesia – his memory lost

    I walked on a twisted road
    but lost direction
    close to your abode

    vanishing destinations
    sabotaged flights, and
    disabled navigation

    dried stains of tears
    tautened smile muscles
    unused for years

    I existed once – an entity
    alive and kicking
    now- a forgotten identity

  2. Your poems often make me think if it is possible to empower another person so much – to the extent of obliterating the self. Gurudutt and Dilip Kumar played these roles long back, but Shahrukh in Devdas was termed a loser by the young audience. Salman tried it once to encash on his separation from Ash, but then the trend just disappeared. A Veere di wedding may seem extreme to some, but has an audience to make it the success it was.
