A Poem by Abhishek Asthana

I thought you would be the one to caught me when I fall... instead you're just another one pushing me over


Ahtiyat ab kya barte ke jaane bhi do ab,

Caarvaan chchordne ka lamha aa gaya..



Rukhsat aakhri bhi wo dene na aaye,

kaisa chahat ka ye falsafa aa gaya..



Shikwaa is baat ab zara bhi nahi,

Waqt guzra jo saath unke accha gaya..



Nashe se nahi par zaher se to hoga,

Haathon se jaam mere chalak sa gaya..



Saaye ne bhi to sang chalna chchoda hamare,

Jaise Naakami ka kaafila aa gaya..



Chand saansein bhi bojhal si lagne lagi,

Khud ki halat pe hamko rahem aa gaya..



Maayusi ki shehnaayi kyun baj gayi jab,

Unki galiyon se mera janaaja gaya !!

Author's Note

Abhishek Asthana
Here i am adding the english version of this poem just for the convenience of my readers

Translation :-
now, it's no use of taking precautions,
its time to leave.

she didn't even come to say me a last goodbye,
see what is the outcome of my affection.

but no complains from my side for that,
whatever time we had spent together was awesome.

better poison will make it easier, if alcohol cannot work,
see how wine spread from the brink of my glass.

even my own shadow has left me,
its like the congregation of failure has arrived in my life.

life looks burdensome,
i am feeling pity for myself.

why someone had heard the funeral song,
when my final journey had gone through just beside of her colony.
