Mind Flirting With Thoughts

She had been awake all last night and many nights before that. Her eyes were closed and she was under layers of blankets – still wide awake. The dreams that chased her mind in a sequence kept coming and coming and she was awake throughout the night tiring her mind endlessly.
People came and talked to her, they laughed with her, they bought her presents and they lived an entire alternate life with her.

She has many times attended the wedding she dreamt of in her dreams, she even managed to tell how much she loved and cared and how much she regrets. She has received her honours in front of people she cared. She has lived an entire lifetime in those nights.

She has been flirting with these thoughts in her mind for so long.

Jaag ke kaati saari raina
Nainon mein kal os giri thi
Jaag ke kaati saari raina

Prem ki agni bujhti nahin hai
Beheti nadiya rukti nahin hai
Saagar tak behete do naina
Jaag ke kaati saari raina

Ruh ke bandhan khulte nahin hai
Daag hai dil ke dhulte nahin hai
Karvat karvat baati raina
Jaag ke kaati saari raina

Nainon mein kal os giri thi
Jaag ke kaati saari raina

    And this verse is good, really good. I liked “Nainon mein kal os giri thi” Mast, mast!

    • @sakhi – she was crying coz of zillions of things going on around her…not leaving her on the day she looked forward to all her life..people totally ruined it for her….
