तुझे, कुछ और पाना चाहता हूँ |

तुझे पा लेने की एक अजीब ज़िद है,
जो तुझे पा लेने भर से, ख़त्म नहीं होती |
तेरे साथ होकर भी,
तुझे, कुछ और पाना चाहता हूँ |

हर वक़्त बेताब होता हूँ,
तेरी बाहों में आने को,
पर वहाँ आकर बस,
कुछ, घुट सा रहा होता हूँ |

तेरी साँसों में घुल जाए मेरी सांस,
इतनी करीबी की है ख्वाहिश,
पर तेरे पहलु में खुद को,
अक्सर, बस रोता-बिलखता पाता हूँ |

आ ख़त्म कर दे मुझे,
या राख़ होजा मेरी रूह में;
बस आज भर की रात, चाहे जीतनी लम्बी हो,
फिर, एक नयी सुबह पाना चाहता हूँ |

Posting in Roman-Hindi (as one of my friends call it :P) as well, for those who understand Hindi but cant read in the original script:

Tujhe paa lene ki ek ajeeb zid hai,
jo tujhe paa lene bhar se,
khatm nahi hoti.
Tere saath ho kar bhi,
tujhe, kuchh aur paana chahta hoon.

Har waqt betaab hota hoon,
teri baaho me aane ko,
par waha aakar bas,
kuchh ghut sa raha hota hoon.

Teri saaso me ghul jaaye meri saans,
itani kareebi ki hai khawaahish,
par tere pehlu me khud ko,
aksar, bas rota bilakhata paata hoon.

Aa khatm kar de mujhe,
ya raakh ho ja meri ruh me,
bas aaj bhar ki raat,
chahe jitani lambi ho,
fir ek nayi subah paana chahta hoon.

Apologies to my friends who may not understand Hindi. Feeling incapable of translating it with the same or even toned down essence it has been written with :(
P.S.: Thanx Donald! Reading and discussing it with you felt like good ol' times :)

Saurabh Kumar Gpta said...

HINDI is the language, we are closer by heart....More over while reading, other than getting into the meaning, I lost into old dyz of "Maa khadi ki chadar de de"; "Veer tum badhe chalo"; " Hum panchi unmukt gagan ke" poems. Keep writing without period :-)

this is a really beautiful peom
which ask the intimacy beyond any limitation
which ask for being each other beyond any existence of self
to be the part of same breath
to be the part of same part of the body'
to be the part of same beat of heart
the writer..craves..actually craves like a child crave for mother
for the embrace of his beloved
not only to cry
(although this is the best moment of his life, when he is most uncomfortable he can smell the comfort of her, and thgat smell will be always comforting for him, even when he is sad and can imagine her smell)

but besides crying in her embrace
he want to be lost in her
while being in her arms, the writer want be being in her
and...
thats it
