os / dew

kabhi kabhi
raat mein
aansu liye sota hoon
aankh mein
subah uththa hoon
to os milti hai bikhri huyi, charon or

at night
i sleep with tears
in my eyes
and i wake up to find, next morn
dew spread across, all around

one more time i failed. one more time i told myself that i’ll win. one more time i slept with tears in my eyes. and one more time i woke up with dreams not yet dry.
