Chaah !!

Aaj fir pahunche ek naya padav,
jiske aage hai naye sapne,
jiske peeche anginat ghante,
to fir likhne ka dil chaha..

Aaj fir khud ko gumsum sa paaya,
socha na aage jaane ka man hai,
na peeche jaake rone ka man hai,
to fir kahin chup jane ka dil chaha..

Socha kab tak rahegi ye daud,
jahan na haar ka anand aata hai,
aur na hi jeet ka sukoon,
to fir kuch der ruk jaane ka dil chaha..

Fir dekha,
koi apna sa hai saath mein,
daud mein bhi vo, intezaar mein bhi vo,
to zindagi se maze lene ka dil chaha..

Keh dia guroor mein zindagi ko,
hai bagal mein mere shabd, and uska saath,
padav nahi.. manzilein hai vo is daud mein,
Aaj dil khol ke jeene ka dil chaha !!

Heads over heels..
Weak in the knees..
The insomniac me..

Knows nothing

Nothing should be said.
I only have to behold
Single one out,
Deign to offer my most pleasant of conversations.
You do not have an inkling,
Naivete gains ground,
As I defamiliarise uncomfortable truths within me.

(For after all, there is no reason for speculation)

But reality is always locked in silence,
Not necessarily in words
As thoughts mostly vindicate:–

I speak the language of my heart

A moment
is all it takes to take it all away
Be the sprite, be the spirit.

Compassing another moment
that moment sways away
the music of the night
the voice of the masses

The moment in itself has
The blueness of the ocean
and the darkness of the sky

Something to live for. Something to live by.
Something to remember. Something to pass by.

The moment comes all of a sudden.
Is a glimpse in the future, the dreams and  the life.
Is something that matters. Is something that should

I looked out my window tonight
and saw the most beautiful site
fireflies and fairies took flight.

They whispered of what they saw,
more beautiful than your wings
that in spite of the wild
some lights can still be found on

A box-
no labels – no warnings
it lays – it waits
for what – for who
nobody knows

no directions – no instructions
it called – you answered
you did not know

you touching it – it touching you
you were full of fears – it was full of tears
you gently opened it – it gently opened you
much more than a box

a rainbow in a box

now you know – and it knows
you can let it go – it can let you go
but you hold it – and it holds you
you are in a box

you do not own it – but it owns you
you were not the first – you are not the last
you are struggling – it is struggling
you should have known

no labels – no warnings
it lays – waiting
for what – for who
nobody knows

a box-

May poetry flow
From your moonlit garden,
From your cool, dark fountain,
Untouched by age.

May your spirit read
The book of life
With the same enchantment
As the child within.
