किस ओर तू चला है बावरे?

किस ओर तू चला है बावरे?किस ओर तू उड़ा है बावरे?हर दिशां में तेरी ही छवि हैऔर हर छवी में वोह हर शक़्स है ,जिसे तलाश हर वक़्त हैपुकारती है मंजिले जिसे बेहध हैकिस ओर तू चला है बावरे?किस ओर तू उड़ा है बावरे?कतरा कतरा जीता क्यूं है?फिर कतरा कतरा मरता क्यूं है?बिखरे सवालो सा […]

Oak caress.Cutlery slides riverside. Tree felling burns shards of heart Mirrored, the hidden twists and turns.Door lock heavy, open plan, and doors hanged.Lover on the sofa, soft.Breaking expressions, observing encodedStranger.White emulsion thermostat Doorknob metal hook rounded,The tin front demonstration,Media art. Close by small conversationAnd see-through smiles.What does it mean, the content and touchesSound and slides […]

I am

I am meditation on the hills I am the sound of the rainI am the petrichor on a dry dayI am an open window and the view outsideI am a dream that you can’t remember   I am the phantasmal of the mind I am the power of the sun I am the buoyant force of […]

Steel Yourself

Steel yourself, for the tide will ebb and flow, Not to lunar dispositionsBut to the gravity of the sorrow in your heart. Stand steady, for if not they shall sweep you awayOverwhelming, they will hold you closeAnd drown you in their embrace. Stay strong, for only will and fortitudeShall stay these resilient watersFrom breaking through and […]

कुछ है

कुछ है जो दबी है हवाओ में कही जो सर उठाओ तो देख लेना वही खूँटे पे तंगी लमहों की चादर मिलेगी कुछ रंगो में एहसासों की नशीली परछाईं मिलेगी मदहोशी में सनी आख़री साँसे लेता, वो बुदबुदाता बल्ब मिलेगा अपनी ही परत उतारती, वो आँधियो में हिम्मत रखती दीवार मिलेगी उस छत से टपकती […]

रिश्ते

कुछ रिश्ते कितने अजीब होते हैं,दूर हो कर भी करीब होते हैं।भोएं तंज कर लेना,और तुनक जाना,खूब लड़ना और मिलते ही रो रो के गले लगाना।कुछ रिश्ते ——— उधड़े हुए वाकयों को सुई से पिरोना,पेबंद लगा कर संजों रखना,बेरंग कपड़ों की तरह,खुशबू से उनकी फिर ,ताज़ा वो वाकये होते हैं।कुछ रिश्ते——- है रंजिशे जो झुर्रियों […]

عید تھی ، سوچا عیدی ملےگیکھ ملی تو تھی، عجیب سی بندوک کی گولی تھی عید تھی سوچا عید گاہ جاوں گا کچھ گز زمین تو تھی، پر خاموش سیکھلا میدان تو تھا وہ قبرستان تھا عید تھی سوچا نۓ کپڈے پہنوں گا کچھ نیا تو تھا صاف صفید سا وہ میرا کفن تھا عید […]

sometimes the truth is so simple it hurts

Sometimes the truth is so simple it hurts,Because your mind wants to believe anything but,Fabric the ways it could be happening,The ways you let yourself conjure and create,Sometimes wishing it we true just so you could breathe ‘I was right’,Then knowing you’d never want that wish to come true. Sometime the truth is simple,Laid out […]

RELATIVE yEARS

We toasted our first year with glasses of tap waterAnd discussed our plans at length. We marked our calendar And wrote down other particulars in our diaries –Height, weight, Color of eyes at dusk, The number of finger-steps from your breast to belly button… You started losing pages From your loose-bound diary from the second […]

Oblivion

Will you forget? You ask. Haven’t you? Already? All the things we had, all the things we dreamt to be? But I don’t really say all that. I look into your eyes. All I see, is fear. Fear of not being so loved. Fear of not finding love again. More so of not being given […]

Burn Out

Simmer down.What burns bright,Burns out. Ablaze and intolerant;Nothing survives its wrath. From places afar,It’s light invites,Those escaping morbid winters. Frost and darkness,Take many lives,And those who still survive,Travel to any emerging light. They arrive,And accept heat and shelter,Heap praise over fires,Burning bright,In the middle of unforgiving nights. In its comfort,They rest.Lay down their guard;They close […]

Souls on Fire

Cigarettes is a subject that often interests me and I cannot help but write about them. I don’t hate smokers infact, I envy them. This was written with no moral principle, but just a creative attempt on understanding love for smoking. Hush, don’t speakSuccumb to me, I’ll last more than a weekI’ll make you cryI’ll […]

Different

It was the 4th of May,No the 5th,And the sun was bright;The grass was green;A Sinatra song was playing,In the radio. She rolled in,In a car with lights.First they came out,And then she followed. The day was still bright,The grass was still green,And Frank was still singing,But she was different. Mellow words,Almost spoken in whispers. […]

Drop

I’ve lost count.Drop!There one more,Adds to what dropped before. Knock!Someone opens the door,And another story is told.My shoulder,They hold.Listen, speak And repeat once more. Day break!Empty room,Only to realise,Its afternoon. Bed cover clutched,Eyes shut,Day wasted! Sleep then eat,Bus Stop;Workplace;Show face;And dusk again. Random words,ScriptEmpty thoughts,Pain, Pain, Pain,Stained shirts,And there they,Drop again! Picture by Levi Xu […]

Insomnia

This was written on an insomniac night, when words were trying to make sense, and the night was just too gentle, I would say. It is probably one of my first poems in my searching-for-meaning-in-life phase. Thoughts, mostly intriguing.They occur only during the nights especially when there’s a connection within yourself that you embrace yet […]

Living

Waking up on the back seat,Of a saturn car,Knowing, I had some dreams left in me;Believing this road is where,I was meant to be;And singing a song,That was playing long before,I was born;Country roads,With folds,Were bringing to my destiny. Memories were being made,And left to be remembered,By those who will remember them,Long after I am […]
