Bas tu mil jae toh zindagi so kuchh shikayatein kam hongi,
Kuchh zakhm bhar jayenge,
Kuchh rihayatein hongi..

Par soch le tu bas pyar hi hai mere paas tujhe dene ko,
Zamane se puchh,
Isse zyada kuchh zarurate aur hongi..

Humsafar hone ka wada maine kar liya hai,
Par mere wadon se badi teri ummeedein aur hongi..

A – Z poetry : “X”

Here is for alphabet “X”

ex

A Nexus Broken

When friends exchange their status

For lovers, their excitement

has no explanations

they meet in excess

are vexed by each others absence

find any pretext to call each other

words never exhaust their sweetness

their love simply extended from familiarity

and…

romance reaches its climax

the complexities of a relationship

misunderstandings express into anger

toxic looks now replace the earlier intoxication

and…

it all exploded into thin air

nothing left to examine

except the battle of the “ex”es

did their friendship once exist??

A – Z poetry : “W”

One alphabet as a muse at a time. Here is “W”

WoNdErInGs

I worry my world will change very soon

My world will change,

whether I worry or not…

The world is a wonder!

Will words always have their way?

Words will; but when silence wends a path

Words will wither away… in wonder!

Will you walk with me a while?

Just until where the waves

Weave their way into the wind… 

The wonder of words…

The world will wait

With willing silence.

A – Z poetry : “U”

One alphabet as a muse at a time. Here is “U”

until

UNTIL

Until the morning comes

Until the light shines

Until the touch of your hand

Until the smile on your face

Until the smell touches me

Until the day is over 

Until we are together

Until the end of time

Until you tell me goodbye

Until I understand

Until I see the light

Until you say I love you

Until the the morning light 

Until the setting sun

Until there is no hope

Until we are through

Until my life leaves me

Until my dying breath

Until I hear your voice 

Until you lay beside me

Until I feel your body

Until I find you

Until you seek the light

Until I find what I lost

Until I take a walk 

Until the world ends

Until the moon glows

Until all is lost

Until we are uplifted

Until we sing again

Until Heaven opens 

Until our dreams come true

Until I can see no more

Until we lay in our grave

Until we meet in heaven

Until that day you will see

Until all the words are spoken 

Until you hear my voice

Until I say I love you

Until I cry no more

Until you come back to me

Until that day comes

Until everything is said

Until you love me

Until you hold me

Until you are mine

Until the day you come back to me

Until we love again

Until there is an answer

Until my love never ends

Until the end of time

Until is never done

Shades of Emotions – 5

mosaic

Na mandir ki aarti,
na mazjid ki dua,
na kisi ghaat ki
aandhiyo se ladta koi diya,
uss ek mashal ko bujhne se rok paae,
jo saanse ginta ginta,
kabhi kargil mein shahid hua…

mosaic 2

Na kami duaon mein thi,
na kaafir ki aanho mein thi,
bas galti ek ye hui ki,
maang li wo apsara,
jo kisi aur ki baahon mein thi..

I’m not wind, who’ll change direction, 

I’m not a tide, who’ll be some moon’s slave, 
I’m not a sun, who’ll trouble with its intensity, 
I’m not snow, who’ll bring you festive times, 

I’m not pine which is too high to climb, 
I’m not butterfly who deceives with its beauty, 
I’m not a brook or river who finds its own way, 
I’m not a flying bird who’s lost direction, 

I’m a dream which gives you hope, 
I’m not reality which is too harsh and “real”, 
I’m not a thorn to your footsteps, 
I’m not a rock on your way, 

I’m not you, and there is no “me”, I just exist within one n all…
Find me, look for me, call me, talk to me, bribe me, or even pay for me, 
Fight with me and hit me, kill me or give me another chance, 
Hurt me and throw me away, or pull me back and respect me.. 
But just don’t ignore me…
