Almost

Holding a pen,
I drew him,  almost…
Nebulous memories
led me numb,
Distinguishing him from the two shadows,
From the image which was once one…

Holding those thoughts,
I fell for him,  almost…

Talking to the torn pages,
They still hold his touch…
Looking at the sky,
I felt his stare,  almost…

Smiling all the way though,
I missed him,  almost…

Verse: Life

अनायास ही उन्हें देखा, तो लगा के बहुत बदल गए हैं

आज कुछ पल ठहरे तो जाना, ज़िन्दगी की रफ़्तार बहुत तेज़ है ।

Now that I know…

Now that I know,
You like when it rains,
I’ll dance with you some more…

Now that I know,
You will play those chords,
I’ll sing with you some more…

Now that I know,
You were crying missing her,
I’ll make you smile some more…

Now that I know,
You’re surrendering to the baricade,
I’ll stand with you some more…

Now that I know,
You’re loosing trust in her,
I’ll trust you some more…

Now that I know,
You’ll keep questioning yourself,
I’ll find answers some more…

Now that I know,
You love her to bits,
I’ll smile for you some more… 🙂

Fly with her…

You want to grab her,
And, She swifts like a feather…
You want to harbor her,
But, She is a passenger…

Fly with her,
She takes you to the skies…
Breathe with her,
She makes you feel alive…

Even in her eyes,
There was a spark…
Covered up with the lies,
Now, lost in the dark…

Search for the truth in phony stories,
Gather the courage to unwrap her diaries…
Caress her with all the dove,
Kiss her scars, and paint yourself with love…

Be the spark of her eyes,
And, she’ll burn herself to make you shine…
Feel her chilly nights,
And, wake up to see the dawn, so divine… 🙂

Vidambana

Apni taareef sun kar, yun khush na hua kijiye,
log yahan, insaan ki nahi, paise ki puja kiya karte hain..

raah chalte kutton ko berehmi se dutkaar dete hain,
par aapke “pet” ke liye, gift lekar pahunchte hain…

jeb bhaari ho to, TT muskurakar seat dilwata hai,
varna usi seat se hatane me waqt kahan lagata hai..

ghar me jitni mithayiaan, utne mehmaan…
gud-shakkar valon ke to aangan sune raha karte hain…

ajeeb vidambana hai ye,
yun to insaan anmol hai,
par har cheez ka mol karte karte,
khud hi ki keemat aankne laga hai…

ab har kisi ki muskurahat par ek prashn-chinh hai,
khud ko mili tawajjo, par ek prashna-chinh hai,
kyonki,
log yahan, insaan ki nahi,
paise ki puja kiya karte hain…

Maana ki…

Maana ki khushi behad khubsoorat cheez hai,
Par ye kya ki, aansuon ko moti samajh liya…

Maana ki pyaar, tyaag ka doosra naam hai,
Par ye kya ki, khud hi ko luta diya…

Maana ki teri parchaai sa saath nibhaungi sada,
Par ye kya ki, tune peeche dekhna hi chhod diya…

Hasratein hamesha thi, tujhe paane ki,
Sapno se saji thi, vo dor mere sirhane ki,
Ab us sirhane me vo garmahat kahan,
Aansuon me lipta hai, har ek dhaaga yahan..

Hairaan hu mai ye jaankar ki,dil ab bhi udna chahta hai,
Kaise samjhaun ise ki,
yun to khushi behad khubsoorat cheez hai,
Par ye kya ki, aansuon ko moti samajh liya…..!
