Ah…these love songs, so deceptive,
The way the seductive male voice pulls the girl…towards him.
Oh! This huge world, I still didn’t manage to find that ‘One’,
And then some say ‘wait’, others just say ‘explore!
What about this heart in me, which is lost in this quandary?
Oh! These Urdu lyrics,
And the sensuous Arabic music,
The candles lit in the darkness,
A girl sits with a veil, dark empty eyes…waiting to be filled.
She cried many nights,
Was awake in some too,
And then as the dawn would awake,
The blanket of tears would become sparkly dew.
The sun would shine bright,
Telling her Hope was for the precious few,
But she was stuck to belief,
That which didn’t made to her view…..
She sits on the window sill,
On a rainy day,
Coffee in hand,
A diary in her lap,
Still in hopeless wait……..
