IN A NOSTALGIC TRANCE

Was listenin to one of my favs tracks....from the movie "lamhe"
goes like this...

yeh lamhe , yeh pal hum,
barson yaad karenge...
yeh mausam chala gaya toh,
hum fariyaad karenge ...:)

brought back a lot of memories and made me rummage through my closet to find this piece i'd written quite some time back...(yeah yeah, i know...some ppl hav weirdplaces assigned to store away their creativity...open my closet n ull find scraps of paper wth my most personal compositions written...strwen about amidst the mess of clothes )
yeah its true...times change, ppl change, situations change..but memories never...!!! :)




MEMORIES...


Memories of the past so good,
forget them all i wish i could.
True happiness i thot i'd found,
now its only memories to wch im bound.

Nostalgia floods me everyday,
as if to tell me it has sumthin to say.
Each time i feel i shudent hold on any longer,
i feel those memories gettin stronger.

The ghosts of yesteryears refuse to leave,
a web of dreams ive begun to weave,
and though i know it wont do me any good,
leave it all behind me i never really could.

Why am i being haunted this way?,
whn those memories hav nothin to say...
Why am i tempted to live in the past?,
whn i know tht it can never last...:(

The futures yet to see, but the presents mine,
and i hope someday everythin to be fine.
To face todays reality , i must dare,
coz livin in a fantasy is never really fair.

Everytime i try snappin out of the trance,
from reality i turn away my glance.
Every step away from it , i take infront,
my heart cant take it, i can feel the brunt!

My mind can never take my heart as a friend,
its a conflict thtll never end.
Both contradict each other in every say,
but hell! its always me who has to pay...!


memories are somethin forever...n however much you try to break loose from them...u can never succeed....or MAYBE u juss don wanna try hard enough cos u r scared tht u juss might...;)

vIcKy said...

Well...Well...Very True...Wherever we go, we carry the memories of the past...Be it good or bad...Its not an illusion, but its what makes the heart pleasant at time of difficulties and perils...

Very well written...And the poem is literally awesome...

Fantastic Piece of Work there...

anirudh said...

hey nice and simple poem this.and so touching at the same time.....bout memories i wrote i last night...

guzri wo har raat odhi yaad chaadar maine thi..
phir bhi kyun main jaane jaade bhar thithurti rahi..

SOLEMN SOLILOQUY said...

Very nice poem pri!!
keep it up!
keep up the good writing!

Keshi said...

Nostalgic yet painful post for me Pri...u write beautifully and so cleverly that hits all the places in my soul quite hard and deep...


**however much you try to break loose from them...u can never succeed

thats true...I try to erase one memory of a painful morning...and I never can...and another night I wont to erase forever...but it wont...it just wont. Looks like the bad memories r the hardest to forget...why?

Keshi.

Ekta said...

Hey,
Now u got me nostalgic too!
Used to love that number--it says the crude reality of life so beautifully!
Moments never stay-and memories never go away!

Pri said...

@ the biggest devil around

ohh ...so my poem has managed to do the impossible...has finally managed to strike some emotion outta the devil ;p...
hope u and ur fella devils liked it...heehee

@ southpaw
thtsmile can say a million things *smiles*

tk care pal

@ jackal

thanks jackal and
welcome to "nostalgic moments"...:)

@ chandni
thanks chands, u seem to be goin thru a lotta nostalgic moments too lately...:)

cheers to the memories we both hav...
*raises a glass*

@ anirudh
nice lines anirudh!!...ur own??..waitin for the entire composition :)


@ ss
thanks ss :) tht was sweet...

@ keshi
i juss voice out my feelins keshi...guess we goin thru similar times :)...n afterall who dosent hav memories...??
who dosent want to let go..?? (at one point of time im sure everyone faces similar situations)...
its juss the magnitude of pain n hurt tht differs...guess some ppl like us brood too long over it n so it keeps "hauntin" us from time to time :)...but guess thts us...so cheer up!!

***Looks like the bad memories r the hardest to forget...why?***

r they??...or is it the good memories we hav wch hav turned bitter??...wht hurts more keshi?
i think its the sweet memories of the past wch keeps comin bak to us and hauntin us cos they r no longer the present and we know tht they r nothin but a distant "memory" now...
sometimes bad memories are easier to get over than good ones...*smiles*
wht do u think?:)

Pri said...

@ ekta

Pri said...

@ anand and ekta

hav u heard the one from "yaadein"...
***baatein bhool jaati hain,
yaadein yaad aati hain...
yeh yaadein kisi dilon jaanam ke,
chale jaane ke baad aati hain...
yaadein ...bas yaadein!!! ***

*smiles*

Keshi said...

***...guess some ppl like us brood too long over it n so it keeps "hauntin" us from time to time

absolutely :):) u r so right..hehehe...

And yeah u r right again abt the good memories haunting us...so true! It's the absence of those good times/events that make us bitter now...wow ur such a great analyst Pri!

Keshi.

Ekta said...

pri!
duh!!..yeah lamhe number sweety!...

Arz000n said...
