Run Away..?

1

Chhupa le sab se
Aa chal kho jae kahin,
Na ho yaad zamana
Bhool jae aasman aur zamin..

Thaam le mera haath
Na jane doon door tujhe,
Bas dekhta mujhe tu rahe
Aur simat jaun main tujh mein hi..

Ho na labb juda
Reh jaae baatein sab unkahi,
Na waqt aage chale
Ruk jae wo peher wahin..

Arranged Marriage

arranged marriage 1

I catch a look
In the mirror
One last time..
Even try
A subtle smile..
Wrapped in silk 
Which looked 
too blue..
And jewellery
Some old some new..
Half a dozen
Bangles
In each hand..
Anklets seen
When I sit or stand..
I dab the last
Touch of 
My make up 
Arrange the tray of eatables
And pick up
I open the door
Of the living room
Slowly glide
Towards the
To be groom
