The longing…

“Wo Jo Teri yaad me ji liya, Wo haseen sirf ek pal tha

Wo Jo ab laut k na aega kabhi, Wo meri zindagi ka kal tha”

Shayad hi sheher mein aisa koi nadaan ho

Jo ishq kar k kahe – khuda na kare koi nuksaan ho

Par Jo Doosri baar bhi hoti to tum hi se hoti

Main jise beintehaan kehti hoon, uska intahaan na lo

Tujhe apne dil ki khabar mere dil se mil jayegi Ghalib

Par jo main rooth jaun kabhi to mujhe manane ki khatir rishta to bana lo

Zara nazook mizaaz hai mere ishq ka, Aqal ka bojh nahi utha paega

Haqikat mein shamil kar k ise saza na suna do

Kaisa intazaar tha ye, tujse milne ko jab beqaraar tha dil

Mausam nahi badla, tujse mil k bhi usi haal mein hai dil

Kaun kehta hai khamoshiyan bolti Hain

Idhar hum sadiyon se khamosh Hain aur wo sadiyon se bekhabar

Teri talkhi ab chubhne si lagi hai, ya ye mere takhayyul ki hai jurrat

Darr hai ki Jis Vasl se kareeb aaye the usi vasl se na ho jaaye furqat

“Jo raakh sa bikhar Gaya, Kya wo ishq tha ek vehem

Ki ab tere intazaar mein din bhi kat jaate hain aur raten bhi…”


Mercy me…

Miles to go Before I sleep

I am trying hard, but it’s hard to sing the song my heart sang yesterday

No matter what i do, the taste of your dulcet kiss on my lips is slowly fading away

I have come so far but the memory of that ephemeral love is there stuck halfway

Mercy please, I don’t want to wake up, when I go to sleep today

Fading Away


Found him in the darkest Meadows

Pure and light like joy of life

His eyes captivated her day and night

Dazzled her like the sharpest knife

She felt connected like never before

All her strings used to sing his song

When his sweet memories tickled her thoughts

She yearned for more, and her heart used to sing along


Goodbye from her

“Love” – The reason I dislike that word is because it means too much for me, far more than you can understand.”

Her heart gone silent, a silence that hurts

She is happy but she is a little sad.

Trying to figure out all she really had

Got scars on her heart by touching few people, felt like she was dying

Only because she let herself scream without even crying

Being madly in love and still not ready

But hanging in tight and holding it steady

She loved you in a way you have never been loved and still not going to join you on the bridge

She is drinking 3 kinds of poison and driving life off the ridge.

Her heart goes through a slow death, shedding each hope like leaves, until nothing remains

It will hold you up there till the last breath even if that means that it pains.

Let her keep the last piece of her heart before you tear it all apart.

Straining under the weight of all the lives she is not living, sometimes she can hear her bones.

She now sees the difference between “living on my own” and “being alone”

Been there now and then, now been here for years.

The secret place she landed is known as the land of tears

She smiles her sorrows away, still chained with her past
Hurts her every time she says goodbye, and you would never know which one is the last.

The Waiting…

This life is a dream, a dream within dreams
Solitude is a painful reality that screams
Everything else is dream
Dreams within dreams with dreams without dreams

I serve a punishment without any end
In a fathomless dark chasm
For a crime I didn’t commit.
I follow the path without direction Wherever it may lead
Scratching memories to bleed

Gushing rivers of tears without an end

Every second pulls me close
To the neverlasting hope of love and pretend
Through the Sparks of twilight I Rose.

It hurts to read the words carved in my heart

I look around, but the darkness inside my eyes so bright.
Darkens the brightest rays of light.

I still look back, in despair. All in vain now because it’s dark everywhere.

Dil k Khali panne

Apne Dard Ka Haal Sunaein ya ghayal dil bayan Karein
Wafa Mili Ho Jinhe Wo bewafai Ki Baat na karein

Kuch kehna bhi na pade aur wo isharon mein samajh jaen

Is umeed se aiyea kuch mudde ki baat Karein

Jab har ghum pe aaj mukhauta chada hi diya
To Karein Bhi to magar Kis Khuda Ki Baat Karein

Dilwale Kai Hain Koi wafaadar Bhi To Ho
Chalo Aaj fir Usi Bewafa Ki Baat Karein…

A Disappointed Soul

I am not too motivated to make a sketch so I am just posting the poem. Hope someone out there will relate…

Sometimes all you need is to keep you to yourself, Because you know no one but you will understand you here.

It feels like you live in a world of fake beings, And the one voice that will sooth your soul, is just not there…

Shall I fly to the land of escape called sleep or Shall I call out for you hence feel at peace, are you willing to share?

I made it to this, by giving away my peace, do you think what happened to me, is all fair?

Occasionally love comes to my mind, when I see those birds flying in pair.

It’s not that I am immune to this pain, but I wonder who anyway here wants to care…

My Crushed Soul

I sat with my solitude and asked her,

Why is today more depressing than yesterday

My sunless life daunting my present,

I am so much more in pain and dismay..

Terrified by what has come to my thoughts,

Horrified by what will come to me as a whole,

Nullified by what I stand as, in this world,

Petrified I look at the mirror and calm my bereft soul…

Heartbroken and left in clouds of sorrow,

Greater than my faith, hides my fear in the dark,

Chilling my bones, Dampening my thoughts,

What is left, is no more going to ignite a spark.

Anything for you

“Gar zindagi mein mil gaye phir ittefaaq se
Poochhenge apana haal teri bebasi se hum


Kya khali tha aapke qalb ka wo kona, ya meri aariz mein Pyaar ka rang tha bhara
Jo tamaam umra beetne k baad is aarazoo mein hum gulistaan tak aa gaye…

Bujhte hue ko imdaad ka dilaasa dene Machalti ulfat ko dilaab ka bharosa dene, Kuch jayaz se ishq me shareekh hone hum falak ke us paar tak aa gaye…

Ek qadam kya badhaya tha raah-e-shauq mein, teri khwabeeda aankhon ki kasam hamdum, manzil ka to pata nahi par lagta hai shayad apne anjaam tak aa gaye.
