The silence of the waves

Saud Beach, Philippines

Each one of you are going to interpret this picture in a different way. I went to sit near the waves at around 12 in the night, and my expressions chose Hindi this time:

इन लहरों के सन्नाटे में
कुछ शब्द सुनाई देते हैं
लफ्ज़ न तेरे हैं न मेरे
बस चंद लम्हों के फेरे हैं
न एक शब्द बोला उसनें
न मेरी ज़ुबां ने ज़हमत की
बात जो पहले रह गयी
वो आज बिन बोलो हो गयी

I was planning to post it in English, but I was afraid of losing the impact. Anyways, let me try to give an English version for my English readers. I hope to bring atleast half of the effect into the translated version:

In the silence of these waves

Some words strike my ears

They are neither yours nor mine

Just a colossal time turbine

Neither did she speak a word

Nor my tongue took the pain

The incomplete talk of the past

Happened today without the words



Nearing the END

A love song that never existed

A story that never really begun

A climax that never happened

The thing which I assumed lost

Was actually a sugarcoated lie

Few moments of my life are left

Steal those like a ultimate thief

Shadows remain with memories

I lay in this red-rusty coffin idly

My soul feels like coming back

Fighting  time for one last time

Then it looks at the dark clouds

That brightness was never mine

The story which looks unfinished

Was just a story in the minds.
