an indefinite wait

I walked a long way
To find a locked door

I stood hesitantly
Do I turn and go?

I walked a long way
To hear words that echo in my dreams

Nothing there
No one here

I walked a long way
to wait

with indefinite longing

Love ya arranged: kya farak padtha hai?!

Love ya Arranged?
Surely we must be deranged
To think we want to spend with one
When happiness can come with none!

Expectations and desires
Are ignited around the same fire
But whether they are met
Is a fifty-fifty gamble net!

The chase is good for some
Or the courting romantic,
But once the fellow commits
His life sentence is mostly now legit!

With awkward exchanges and gawky looks
Family arrangement is the way for some,
As she dons the mantle, nee hat
Of super-woman, and, the door mat.


Living, Loving, Laughing
The toil is the same,
Conflicts, confusion, confrontations
The journey could be the same.

But lets not disparage
A union that brings two together
Love ya Arranged
क्या फ़रक पड़ता है ?!


(The trick is to quickly surge forward
Grab that spouse by the hand
And gallop towards a destination
Or just choose to enjoy the scenic road!)
