Do you also spend nights awake

Do you count the watches of the day too

That it will end somehow 

Does this emptiness cut you too

Does something beautiful bring tears to your eyes

Because we see life together

Do you cry alone too

Through your fingers before meeting someone

Wipe your tears, do your hair

Do you also drink tea alone

And you become lonely

Because loneliness could not become a habit

When a very handsome shux talks to you

Do you get tangled too

Because you are not interested

When someone asks you how are you

Do you also talk about your work

Because you can’t tell how deep the pain is

I am the same – just like you.

‘Like you’ – Rakesh Shukla ‘Manu’
