lingering on the periphery

lingering on the periphery

Hm ne maane k taghaful na karo ge lekin
Khaak ho jayen ge hm tum ko khabr hone tak


full moon, garland dried roses
A garland for the full moon

waiting by the shore
longing to see the other side
of the ocean
lingering on the periphery
sensing our affinity
if only you never were,
but you are

like dust particles
swirling in the dying gasps
of every sunset, when

the crow squawks home
an empty beak, still
ego undented

a garland of dried roses
in your memory
should you depart
before my time

if only you never were,
but you are


I am fortunate to be young enough 😉 to have enjoyed the music of the 90s

You and me, we used to be together

Every day together, always

I really feel that I’m losin’ my best friend

I can’t believe this could be the end
