Dear Crush

Dear crush,

Tum na, mere har kaash mein basti ho

School mein pyar ka andaaza issi se ho jaata tha ki

Aap peechhe mudkar kitne baar dekhte ho

Aur maine apni aadhi school life peechhe mudne mein nikaal di

Aur baaki ki aadhi tum aage baitha karti thi

Kaash dekhte dekhte kisi din tumse aake baat hi kar leta

Waise tumhe pata nahi hoga par

Maths ke har class mein main utsaah se isliye answer diya karta tha

Kyuki mujhe pata tha ki tum maths mein thodi weak ho

Main jaanta tha ki tum apne doubts kisi na kisi se puchha karti hogi

Main chaahta tha ki tum mujhse puchho

Kaash..! kisi din main hi approach kar leta

Apni notebook ke saath

Mere saare dost jaante the ki tumhaare peechhe kitna deewana hoon

Unhone to ik baar mere desk pe tumhaara naam bhi khured diya tha, mere naam ke saath

Tum dekhti usse pehle hi maine mita diya

Masoom se dil ko woh karte waqt bhi bahut bura laga

Humaara naam kahin bhi ho use mitaane mein bura toh utna hi lagta tha

Kaash.d! maine rehne diya hota

Toh shayad galati se hi kisi din padh leti

Tumhe pata hai school mein wo 350 waale woh SMS pack aate the

Main hamesha woh karwaata tha ye sochkar ki

Tumse baat ho jaayegi

Par phir main kharch kar deta tha apne doston par

Ye discuss karne mein ki tumse baat karoon bhi toh kya karoon..?

Kaash, uss 350 waale SMS pack mein se maine ek message tumhe kar diya hota

Aur haan kya tumhe aaj bhi English utna hi pasand hai..?

Dekho sach batata hoon, mujhe English itni nahi pasand thi

Par jab bhi tum mere aas paas guzarti na,

Toh main English mein bolna shuru kar deta tha

Kabhi kabaar toh Shakespeare ko bhi qoute kar deta tha

Pata nahin kyun..?

Kaash, kisi din tumhaare saamne hi aake English mein baat kar leta

Pata chal jaata ki tum impress ho rahi ki nahi..??

Par sabse bada afsos mujhe iss baat ka hai ki

Ke jab corridor mein hum chaltein rehte aur humaare haath takraate

Toh main tumhaare har ungli ko fisalte hue mehsoos karta

Tum thoda aage jaati, palatti, muskuraati

Aur phir apne raaste chale jaati

Kaash main tumhara haath thaam leta

Agar tumhe bura lagta toh main wapas kabhi nahi karta par,

Agar tumhe accha lagta toh,

Toh mujhe bhi jawaab mil jaata

Kitne kaash se bhari hai na humaari zindagi

Aaj bhi dekho.. Tumhare naam ki chitthi likhi hai par,

Par bhej paaunga ki nahin wo nahi pata

Agar inn ‘Kaash’ mein se koi ek ‘Kaash’ bhi main sach kar paata na,

Toh aaj tum shayad sirf meri crush nahi,

Meri humdard bhi hoti
