mumbling

how do you tell the world
that you sold it
for a glance?

How do u tell a glance
that it couldn't care less
and you couldn't care more...

How do you tell care
that it is at the wrong doorstep?
This house belongs to heartache.

How do you tell heartache
that it is a misnomer?
It hurts everywhere.

Oh my dear, you are right. So it does. But not forever, although it may remain in a little place, which is in your heart, to give an occasional reminder.

kehte hain jise dard-e-dil
sirf dil mein nahi rehta kambakht
nason mein phail jata hai
zehar ban kar

Before we started making the heart the centre of all our heart-aches and feelings, it used to be Liver and in Urdu/Hindi - Jigar :)
