The Veneer

You think I am strong? I feign to be stronger Than I am The pretence Does not last longer I do get hurt, I bleed By your flighty deed Yet I hold back my tears Try to wave off my fears Desperately Holding on to the last straw From   memories […]

Just a Call Away

My heart is twitching My fingers are itching To grab the receiver Lest, it may deliver The voice divine For which I pine And Pray For he is just A phone call away Something holds me back Forebodings   that   lack Hope and conviction To uphold my fantasy, my fiction I’m […]

Trees Uprooted

There was a time When man and wild  Lived together for quite a while The sun the moon the planets too Took care to nourish both and true The gradual years as they rolled by Tore the bond that grew and bound The two together soon tore apart When greed […]

The Flight

Out of Blue He flew Down, into my terrain, Not like bird, but Like an aero plane Promising to take me away Far, far, away Beyond distant horizon Towards heaven’s gateway. Swept me off my feet A rare exotic treat Sheer bliss I closed my eyes Still saw fluttering fireflies […]

जाने – जानाँ

मैं  मुब्तिला  हूँ  एक  खामोशियों  के  जंगल  में सिर्फ  दो  लफ़्ज़  तू  ही   बोल  ऐ  जाने – जानाँ  टूटती  हैं  रगें  दिल  की ,ज़रा  आवाज़  तो  दे मार  डाले   न   कहीं   ये   ग़मे – हिज्राँ   जानाँ तू  मेरे  पास  नहीं , होता  भी  तो  क्या  होता तूने  मुझको  कभी  अपना  […]

Hunger

There he was Sitting outside the temple With his dog Looking at people passing by Caught in the race of life With not a moment to spare He looked on and searched For a face to gaze upon him And eyes to smile And lips to say a few kind […]

That is the Question

To be or not to be Yes To be or not to be Since teenage  Heard these lines Mulled over them Many many times When, at last, The meaning sinks in It’s end of Journey with links in Phases you wonder The joy, the trust, and The total surrender Then […]

इम्कान

वो तो ऐसा न था,वो बदल  सा गया मेरी क़िस्मत को किसकी नज़र लग जयी मैंने खुशियाँ सभी से छुपा रखी थीं ग़म के लश्कर को कैसे खबर लग गयी हम संभाले रहे दिल को हर गाम पर चोट  गहरी ये  देखो, मगर, लग  गयी आओ देखें  धुआँ सा कहाँ […]

Sorrow Of the Soul

Screaming innocence,  Weeping motherhood Barking barbarians,  Dying humanity Oh Lord! Break your silence Demolish the pyramid of blind faith Destruct the world with gigantic waves Let the sun rays never touch on the earth Moonlit night,  dazzling stars Roaring waves, blasting sound Pale eyes, Colorless dreams Oh Lord! Let’s finish […]
