In search of my soulmate

खोजती हूँ तेरा अक्स
कभी लफ्ज़ो में
तो कभी दरवेशियों में
तू भी उन की मानिंद
किसी से छुपा बैठा है। (I look for your shadow in words and saints;you too hide like they do).

As I listen to the
soulful verses of “Ghazal “
I walk towards him
knowing his address is not known.

A shadow exists in the shayrana verses
to hustle my heart
into an ecstatic world of love and desires.

I spend the entire day, playing the same gazal
till I can scribble a name.

I walk hand in hand with an umbra in the lush green wilderness;
where he narrates his incomplete poems.

Oh! I wonder!
Does he find a similar reflection in
Shayari and ghazals?
My mind plays the same ghazal
while he completes his, incomplete poetic verses.
