i had spent the day
friendless, lonely and sad,
a stranger to myself.

after drowning the day
on the sea shore,
i walked back
to my empty house
on the deserted street.

the moment
i opened the door,
the book on my table
flipped its pages
and said:
where were you
for so long?

generally aamir’s the one who posts poems. when i read this, i figured he’d like this one. so here it is aamir, this one’s for you. =)

  1. thank you, adnan. it’s wonderful.

    gulzar actually made a movie called kitaab. it’s lying in my closet here – i haven’t had a chance to see it yet.

  2. i am extremely disappointed in my movie watching lately. it’s been over a month since i saw a movie.

    i think i will make a list of gulzar movies to watch. hit the dvd shop and see what i can come out with.
