सर्द से लम्हे…

जब रेत यादों से उड़ी,
ख्वाब सब ही बेवजह लगने लगे
और काँच के ये आईने
अब आँखों में चुभने लगे

तू भी यून बदलता रहा
जैसे वक़्त निकलता गया
तेरे पीछे-पीछे मैं भी
आँखें बंद करके चलता रहा

Winter's Sorrow — teapalm

उदासी भारी यादें सभी, उस जगह पे बिखरेंगी
जिस लम्हे में मिलेंगे हम, देख लेना
हर दर्द भी तो टूटेगा, हर तड़प भी पिघलेगी
जिस लम्हे में मिलेंगे हम, तुम देखना

हाथों से मेरे इस पल
क्यूँ ये लम्हे निकल चले हैं?
आखों में मेरी क्यूँ
सब यादें सिमट गयी हैं?

मेरी साँस बह तो रही थी ठीक से
जो तूने लम्हे चुरा लिए
तो गुज़र ना सकी तेरे नज़दीक से
दर्द गुज़रता रहा सीने से, दिल भी निकल सा गया सीने से
चुभती रही तेरी यादें, जैसे काँच के टुकड़े बारीक से

Limerence? Not Quite…

A tale of trembling hearts
With words erupting like a volcano
Impudence isn’t there, just fragility of thoughts
I spend hours attempting to join the dots.

Can’t find words, they just erode
When you stare at me, with eyes heavy and broad
Half full or half empty, I don’t know
Are you hiding something similar beneath those eyelids?
Let me know

The moments we’ve spent together,
are both the serendipitous memory
As well as a perpetual sorrow
They were a harbinger of spring to this day
But might soon turn into a steady drizzle by tomorrow

It ain’t fragile, it never was
Neither is my love a gimmick
In fact, my love has reached a point
Where both you and I are synonymic

All my words are lying before me
Like dead weights
Soft sounds emerge from my lips
But perish before reaching your ears
Lips begin to ache
And all that remains at hand is a multitude of snowflakes…

The Pilgrimage to Your Heart…

Words are lying in disarray,
You know what I mean, don’t you?
It is with you that I find profound solace
A place so calm and peaceful

The skies have turned murky
And moving forward is a daunting task
I have been struggling to get things going
For the path I took was insurmountable and rough

The journey is wearing me out
But I’d keep on moving
If I give up, all hope would perish
Never to return

I always knew there was a place
Later, it dawned on me that it was just a trick
Wanted an immediate answer
It hurt me immensely and I felt cheated
Despite despondence, I’d like to keep you close to my heart
My voice is falling apart
You kissed my cheek and smiled, rather nonchalantly
I realized that the journey was complete
I had conquered the final frontier…

Apologies of a lover…

Today, when I closed my eyes

Deep down into the depths of sleep

I could not hear myself weep,

But I know you heard my cries

I could hear your voice calling me

And then the enchantment broke

Out of nowhere, my throat began to choke

And then in my mind, although without reason

Flashed memories of the blissful season

Of the moments we had spent together, in a world of our own

without you I feel like I’m wasted, I’m being thrown

And soon I realized, my love had turned into addiction

It was all real, it wasn’t fiction

But then, my mind entered into a line of thought

I felt I had gone a bit too far, from rainfall to draught

I got to know, I had gone completely wrong

I had fallen weak at a time when I should have been strong

Out of despondence and out of insecurity

I saw how vulnerable I had fallen

I was being swept away, I was being stolen


You showed me everything which was holding me back

When you are there my life’s on track

I said ‘ I love you’

And I know I really do

I said ‘I love you’

Because I could see myself in you

But I am sorry for revealing what I felt

I thought you would tell me how this problem is to be dealt


I am sorry for crossing the limit

I am such a coward, meek and timid

Everything happened because of my fear

For I want you to be near

So, let us be friends yet again, the best of them

For your friendship turned me into a gem


So, to conclude the story

I can only say I’m sorry

We can’t be together as lovers, I guess it is true

But as the best of friends, I have chosen you

Because when I went out to search for faithfulness in the world,

I found you
It is your smile which keeps me moving

Because you held my hand and drove me out of the dark

And, when both of us collide, we tend to come together

But even if we don’t , I guess we’ll never be far apart

Qaid (Captive)


नब्ज़ चल तो रही थी ठीक से
पर क़ैद थे अकेलेपन में
जब तूने पत्थर रख दिए तो गिर पड़े
ना उठ सके

तू लम्हा वो, जो ठहरा नही
ये रात का अंधेरा इतना भी गहरा नही
माना फिलहाल तेरे करीब नही
पर ना आ सकूँ तेरे पास
इतना भी सख़्त ये पहरा नही

तेरे साथ बिताए लम्हों की दिल में तस्वीरे हैं
इन्हे देखकर लगता है की जुड़ गयी हमारी तक्दीरे हैं
पर फ़िर मुझे आता है याद
की तू है आज़ाद परिंदों की तरह
जबकि हाथों में मेरे ज़ंजीरिएन हैं

क्या था वादा तेरा?
की हम नही होंगे जुदा
ना तो ये शब गयी
और ना ही हुई सुबह

तबाह कर दे मुझे
या टूट मुझ मे जा
क़ैद हुआ तेरी यादों में
क़ैद हुआ सौ दफ़ा

Khwabeeda (dreamlike)

A raw charm and engulfed me
She looked lively
A soul wild and free
It flew out of my hand
Before I could count up to three

Heaven and hell are superlatives
It was something in between
Moments ago, it was real
Right now, it’s just a dream
Nothing has changed
Everything remains the same
A slight prick, but a lot of pain

Breaths were getting heavier
And the world was turning upside down
It is no longer scorching hot
Within four walls, I am no longer caught

A fond memory was stolen
My heart had started bleeding
Eyes too were swollen

I was caught
Within glass walls
You came and broke them all
Gigantic, strong, and tall

And then, our eyes met
You were right beside me
Moments later, you were gone
I felt cold, perplexed, and alone

Just then, the splendour ended
I woke up
And was left in a state of despair
After you vanished into thin air…

Uncovering the Layers…

Beneath that skin of yours,
there’s a lot more than just blood and veins
It is all kept under the wraps
The tribulations, the agonies, the pain

Layer after layer, I try to unwrap you
Much like a gift box
All of it is nothing but a hoax
Staring deep down into your gleaming eyes
I return empty-handed,
completely outfoxed

I start again,
Putting two and two together
But all of it ends up being in vain
All I can figure out is,
you’re ruffling my feathers

An effigy melts, much to my dismay
For it wasn’t supposed to end this way
I wanted to separate bran
But sadly, all I was left with was hay

You’re made of glass
Of countless broken shards
Some blood trickles down
Out of nowhere
And I see myself falling like cards
You’re way more than what meets the eye
A stream of questions within the body of a firefly
Reasons and conventions are getting dull
And all that is left is an abominable lull..
