Nindiya Re

by mossgirl19   Sep 16, 2018

Sometimes love subtly strikes against dusty photographs
and the remembrance of the past draws clear...

Sometimes a fire is gently kindled by old paragraphs
and within those letters I shed a tear...

Sometimes I'd hear your tender voice saying Jaanu, nindiya re,
and I'll close my eyes...

Sometimes my dreams of you would take me to the heavens
and even greater heights...

Yet sometimes I think of all my wealth and glory
and of all that I could do and say...

And how in every passing minute I'd wonder
...what if you never went away...

This time, the only truth are my eyes cold and empty
and delight that is far from real...

Cause' sometimes I'd think of you only to know
Time had never changed how I feel...

(*Jaanu, nindiya re - Urdu, meaning my love, come sleep)

    Oh my word...
    Firstly I'd like to say its good to see you back and secondly I'd like to say I'm glad this piece had been nominated I can imagine many of us have been there, done that and got the t-shirt to prove it so to speak maybe even a few so what I guess I'm saying is this piece is no doubt relatable and meaningful to the best of us and if not now it most certainly will be in years to come unfortunately.
    I did try and find a meaning for the title but all I could come up with for a meaning of 'Nindiya' was 'blameless' which I guess could fit perfectly really as sometimes when 'love' breaks down it can be blameless and just fizzle out anyway I'm not sure that's the meaning here...
    The piece itself just flows so very well and if I dare say it it flows as smooth as glass - yes I did steal that from our dear friend Mr picked I hope it isn't copyrighted or I owe him some money hahaha
    Take care and don't be a stranger. Xx
