Here is a very short poem in transliterated Urdu/Hindi which I will actually take the time to translate for you. I thought of it in my head on the way to the doctor a fair few weeks ago, so the mood indicated has passed somewhat.
The musicality in the original is something you’ll miss out on though.
Such bolhe toh….
Hai kuch bhi nahi
Sirf dokh, bimaari aur tanhaaie
Mohabhat hai sirf
Aur pariyon ki kahavat.
To speak the truth…
Only pain, illness and loneliness
True love is only
And a fairy proverb.
