Hindi Poem: Andhera. A travelers journey in the dark to meet her love

A hindi poem that narrates a travelers journey in a dark night to meet her love.

The journey is full of uncertainties and hence the emotional touches, the thoughts of her and the darkness.

PS: I will try to add an English version if I get any comments requesting so....

Here it goes.....



Yeh andhere ka safar,
Yeh safar ka andhera.
Kuch daravna sa, kuch meetha sa.
Han andhera hai yeh, thoda zeher thoda meetha.

Shhh. Koi hai. Shh Koi bhi toh nahi hai.
Bus mein hu yaha, ya koi hai jo sun raha meri khamoshiya.

Yeh andhere ka safar, yeh safar ka andhera.
Sunsan sadak, dhulmil manjilen.
Bus kuch hai toh ajeeb sa sannata,
Mano bus tootne ko hai, sab kuch chutne ko hai...

Tere kale kesho se bhi ghera hai yeh andhera
Mujhe nigalne ko betab yeh andhera.

Par phir jese tere kesh hatne par milti hai muskan teri.
Aesi hi ho is andheri rat ka ant; bus yehi chahat hai meri.
