that one, you and me / woh tu aur maiN

that one, you and me
those lips kiss once
and there is no stopping!
only those lips are not yours

abruptly halted that fast train
in the middle of the night
at some wayside station
on the dim lit platform
a beggar woman
youthful beauty, dusted in poverty
approached, arms out stretched
unkempt hair, wisened scared eyes
depravity embedded in rags
changing seasonís imprints on skin
and those lips
oh those fresh cut orange slices!

ìMove, get away, sorry,î
said i and then perhaps
with guilt ridden misgivings
drew down the blinds

woh tu aur maiN
woh lub taaza, rus bharay
choomo tou choomtay hee raho
laikin woh lub teray kahaaN

tez raftaar train neem shub
ruki jo achanak
kisi door ooftaada station per
tou neem malgaji roshniouN maiN
ik bhikaran
gandagi aur ra'aniyouN ko sim'tay
jholi phaila kay qareeb aaie
ooljhay baal, hirasaaN aaNkhaiN
jil'd per taghay'yoorat-e-mausam kay nishaaN
mehroomiyouN ki boo maiN lapti dhaj'jiyaaN
aur woh hoN't
sangtaray ki kaash jaisay!

'hatto, jao, maaf karo'
aur far't e khiffat say
pardah khiRki ka
choRh dya hum nay
