refrained for too long...

The finest lines come in my darkest hours.
How, O lord! have thee cursed me!
Its a curious thing, putting it in words.
It rings of acknowledgment and finality.

Tiny black letters holding mirror to thought.
Tangible now, there's no denial anymore.
Arms up in the air, you sigh an 'alright'!!
Good ol' Birla Mandir on a rainy day...
an exquisite proposition.
Bless the out-of-turn rains in the city.
Chaahe tum kuchh na kaho, maine sun liya
Ki saathi pyaar ka.. mujhe chun liya
Chun liya...
Maine Sun liya.

Movie-Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar
Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri

Found a song that beats this one at its game?
Seldom comes a movie, which can carry the burden of each song being better than the other.
Two come to mind now, Aandhi and Abhimaan.
You are busy sharing this moment with someone,
but have you remembered to live it?
She practiced remaining still, for,the shackles hurt.
Now the handcuffs are gone.
But she isn't sure of motion, anymore.
She refrained, maybe, for too long.

"well too abstract for a visitor...."

and here I was under the impression of this post being one of the more comprehendable ones. :)

"if u r writing 4 urself "
I write because I have nothing better to do.
