अजीब  होता है ये रिश्ते ,
रिवाज़ों और  दस्तखतों के बीच में खो जाते हैं मायने ,

बंद दरवाज़ों के अंदर सिसकियाँ भरता है,

पर कोई  खोलता नहीं दरवाज़े की कड़ी,
दो जिस्म तो मिल जाते हैं आपस में ,
लेकिन रूह को खबर तक नहीं होती !

और कुछ रिश्ते वो भी हैं 
होते 
 कभी कोई रस्म, कोई कागज़ का टुकड़ा कोई दस्तखत नहीं होता
पर, लगता है जैसे एक ही रूह को दो जिस्मों में भर दिया हो उसने।

लफ़्ज़ों की ज़रुरत नहीं होती, बस धड़कनें करती है बातें,

नाही कोई बंधन है होता, ना किसी को बांधने की चाहत है होती 

होता है तो बस  एक दूसरे के साथ होने का एहसास,

लम्हों से ज़िन्दगी नहीं होती,
हर एक लम्हे में ज़िन्दगी होती है !

Translations

These relationships are weird isn't it ?

meanings get lost between traditions and signatures.

it suffers and cries behind those closed doors,

but no one dares to open the door.

two bodies unite, 
but souls remain as strangers.

but there are those relationships also,

no rituals, no signatures, no piece of paper is required.
but it seems like two bodies have a single soul.

words are not required.

when hearts have conversation.
there are no need of control, nor any restriction.

all that is there is  feeling of togetherness and contentment.
life is no longer simply a collage of moments.
every moment is alive 
and every moment has a life.

  2. words are not required when heart have a conversation
    and there is def much contentment in that place
    if/when we find it...

    every week at PoetsU you ask for feedback,
    i hope you take the time to give some to the other poets as well
    particularly those that take the time to give it to you.

  3. I like the contrast between "two bodies unite but souls remain as strangers" and "words are not required when hearts have a conversation." So true.

  6. Sometimes the magnetism of bodies and soul exist.. And sometimes nothing can ignite the flame - so true

  7. It is a bit sad if two bodies unite, but the people remain strangers. I do think in perfect relationships words are not required, for sure, as the language of the heart speaks strongly.

    I agree with Brian. We who give our time to your poem would like to have the same respect shown to our poetry. Community works two ways, don't you think?
