A Lot Happens Over Coffee


Milee thee woh
akeli
coffee ke badey se cup ke saath.
Jagah dhoond rahi thee
baithne ke liye
ek bekaar coffee ki mehengi dukaan mein.

Uljhe hue
anginatt naqaabon ke beech
suljha hua uska chehra
kuchh asli sa dikhaai deta thaa.

Main bhi waheen thaa
akela
coffee ke badey se cup ke saath
Saathi dhoond raha thaa
apne paas bithaane ke liye
uss bekaar coffee ki mehengi dukaan mein.

Jaan padta hai
sirf main akela nahin thaa.
Aur bhi akele hain iss bheed mein
Dhoond rahe hain koi saathi
apna akelapann bantne ke liye.

"Excuse me.
Kya aapke saath koi baitha hai?"
Aur wahin se shuru hoti hai
ek nayi kahaani
uss bekaar coffee ki mehengi dukaan mein.
