Someday…

someday I will say, this far and no more
someday I will stand and say, fall no more
someday I will see my face in a spring of water
love what I see and think of no more

someday I will be the picture and not the pieces
someday I will be the destination not the traces
someday I will see the spirit not the faces
someday I will feel the people not the images

someday I will live life, not the dream
someday I will want you, not your notion
someday you will meet me, not my imagination
someday we will find love, not its apparition

someday nothing will exist, but me and you
someday nothing will be desired, but me with you
someday I will fear nothing, but me without you
someday it will be the same, this me and you

Someday…

Lost in the maze…

why it has to happen
and why this way only
it can happen many ways
but why it happens this way

I go wide and far
I go talk to the star
I go wild and crazy
and I become absolute mess

I feel it never happened before
I feel this will never happen again
I feel there is no way out of it
I feel this is going to be forever

I feel this is a new road
I never travelled before,
I do not find any trace
Of my travel on this road before

And I keep walking
As i keep talkingto myself,
to fellow travellers
but they see the end clearly
they have been on the road before

Why was I left out I ask
why have I not been here before
puzzled they look at me and say
ofcourse you have been here before…

Perplexed, I become still,
take a break and stand
without moving, contemplating
its all in all bloody confusing

I stand there as people pass by,
calling me over to move by,

Woods are dark and deep…

I crossed the sea…
it was blue and black
it was dark and deep
it was rough and steep
it didnt let me fall asleep

i crossed the sea..
i burned the bridges
i roughed the edges
i left it all behind
churning its empty grind

i face the sea
..its dark and deep
its dark and deep
its rough and steep

i will change that all
..till then I wont go to sleep !!

End of world

When World is coming to an end
When U know there is no tomorow
When There Is Nothing Left To Lose
For U Have Lost All Already,
When There Is No Fear, To be Conquered,
When All Wordly Affairs Lose Their Sheen,
Then Comes Forth The Heart
And Becomes The Man’s Raining Queen ..
Today..Yes Today, I Feel The Same,
Fearless As A naked Monk,
Walking On This Lonely Road,
When All Sounds Are getting dimmed
When All Figures Are Getting Slimmed,
I Can Hear The Distant Bell,
Coming From My Heart’s Well…
I Can Here Its Incessant Cry,
I Can Listen Its Inveterate Crave,
For It Had Never been So Grave,
And What I Hear Is Here For All,
XXXXX, I L U FOR ONCE AND ALL…

poetry collage…

Off I go, Out of the woods
towards the hill, where moon resides
O Sun, when you rise tomorrow
You will have a dull day at work
For I wont be there to greet you anymore…!!!

कुछ न कहना हम सीख जायेंगे
ख़ामोशी की जबां तुम सीख जाओगे
वक़्त अपनी रफ़्तार तो न बदलेगा
इसके साथ कुछ जख्म सूख जायेंगे
कुछ के साथ हम रहना सीख जायेंगे
खुल के हंसना तो नहीं मुमकिन
छुप के रोना शायद सीख जायेंगे

———————————————————————————————–
सच ही तो है
ये जो तुमने कहा
सच ही तो है

दिल मेरा यूँ जो
कट के गिरा
सच ही तो है
ये जो तुमने कहा

जो हम कह पाते
क्या है दर्द-ए-दिल
जो तुम सुन पाते
क्या है अनकहा

तो क्यूँ कहते तुम
वो जो है कहा
क्यूँ मैं यूँ रोता
उसपर जो है कहा

सच ही तो है
ये जो तुमने कहा
सच ही तो है

some say I am intelligent, I think I am genius
some say I am witty, I think I am hilarious
some say I am sensitive, I think I am adorable
some say I am humble, I think I am bored
Rest say, You little moron and I say.. “How the hell did they find out…”

अबकि जो उड़ा है मन, तो ना जाने किस मोड़ पे ठहरेगा
किसी शाख़ पे बैठेगा या किसी राह पे गिरेगा

एक हाथ सा बढ़ाया किसी ने, एक अहसास सा कराया किसी ने
सर घुटनों में दबा बैठा था, जब नाम ले बुलाया किसी ने
————————————————————————————————-

ग़ालिब निकले थे घर से बाहर सूखते कपड़े उतारने
दुनिया ने मदद यूँ की, जो पहने थे वो भी उतार दिए

हमने उर्दू में शेर सुनाया, तो वो कहने लगे ‘यू आर क्रेजी’
भाई हमने तो यूँ ही कह दिया कुछ, आप तो मारने लगे अंग्रेजी

नाती बना दिया खाम-खां में हमें ग़ालिब का,
ग़ालिब भी परेशान हैं, मेरे दादा भी नाराज़ हो गए

हमने उनसे कहा की हम बेसहारा हैं,
तो वो बोले सहारा की फ्लाईट शाम को है

हैं वो कुछ जुदा से और थोड़े से गुमशुदा से,
जाके उन्हें बुला दो, वरना मिल जायेंगे हम खुदा से

वो हमसे पूछते हैं की ये वफ़ा कौन है,
तुम ही उन्हें बता दो की हम बताएं क्या

ये हुस्न ये बदन ये जवानी की महक, चार दिन रहेगी
मेरी आशिकी में रंग के देख, उम्र भर साथ देगी

तेरा बुढ़ापा तुझे साथ दे रहा है बचपन से
तू किस-किस के बचपन को जोड़ेगा अपने पचपन से

माना थोडा संग दिल है, सीने में फड़कते जज़्बात नहीं..
पर आप बुलाएं हम ना आयें, ऐसे भी बुरे हालात नहीं..

कुछ उन्होंने आज़माया नहीं, कुछ हमने बताया नहीं..
कुदरत भी कुछ अज़ीब है, कभी उसने मिलाया ही नहीं..

कुछ उन्होंने आज़माया नहीं, कुछ हमने बताया नहीं..
दोनों तरसते रह गए, तक़दीर ने मिलाया ही नहीं

कह दिया उन्होंने हमको बिहारी, लग गयी बात दिल को ये भारी..
भाई सरयू-तीरे रहते हैं, हम हैं लखनऊ की उम्दा कलाकारी..

कभी सोचता हूँ मैं कुछ कहूं
कभी सोचता हूँ मैं चुप रहूँ

कभी सोचता हूँ थोड़ा इंटेलिजेंट लगूं
फिर सोचता हूँ जो हूँ वो क्यूँ बनूँ

ये भी सोचा एक बार की कुछ शायर सा बनूँ
कोशिश कर भी ना बन पाया तो क्या करूं

फिर कुछ सोचा फिर और भी सोचा
सोचते सोचते ना सोचने का भी सोचा

सब सोच कर फिर कुछ कर गुजरने का सोचा
कर गया जो सब तो कुछ ना करने का भी सोचा

बहुत दिन हुए मैंने कुछ भी नया है ना सोचा
मैं खुश हूँ या गुम हूँ ये भी है ना सोचा

मैं खुश तो हूँ पर नहीं भी हूँ शायद
क्यों सर खपाऊँ है ये बेकार की कवायद

मैं चलता हूँ मद-मस्त जैसे चलता है चक्का
बिना सोच कर भी लगता है कुछ सोचा है पक्का…

if the game sucks I will play it
if it pays too well i will chuck it
I want everything but need nothing
cant say what but will be something

if you can like me I will love you back
if you hate me i will hold you and ask why
if you look at me and turn away I will cry
and I will do so till they run dry

when I chose to run will run too fast
I may not be first but will never be last
(poem not complete yet.. )

Sometimes I am an idiot
Often I am a gadha
to find me is easy
just see near the drain,
I must be somewhere close by
seedha ya ulta padha

मजबूरी को हमने अपना मुक़द्दर बना लिया
रात भर की बेग़म को हमसफ़र बना लिया

दिल जो भी कहे बस करे जाओ
जिस राह को कहे बस चले जाओ
मर जाने को भी कह देगा ये अक्सर
कीमत है ये तो बस, भरे जाओ

कुछ लोग यूहीं हंस लेते हैं
जाने कैसे खुश हो लेते हैं
दाँतों के मोती जब चाहे
अनायास यूहीं बिखराते हैं

अनगढ़ अनकट जो हीरा है
उससे कब किस ने प्यार किया
छन छन छल छल
चिंतन चितबल
तेरी हर एक निगाह
ने वार किया
वो रोता रहा
कुछ खोता रहा
झूठों से सच को
भिगोता रहा
पर शीशे पर
पानी बोलो
कभी कहाँ
टिक पाया है
———————————————————
बाकी हैं अभी सिरे कुछ जोड़ने को
बाकी हैं अभी पत्थर कई तोड़ने को
न जुड़ सके जो ये सब आपस में
काम आयेंगे अपना सर फोड़ने को

मैं दुनिया से दूर कहाँ
दुनिया मुझे अनजान सही
कोई दर्द शिकायत शिकवा नहीं
खाली था सोचा परेशान सही

————————————————————

इस पार से उस पार की ज़िन्दगी, कभी समझ न आएगी
उस पार जाकर इधर की ज़िन्दगी कभी रास न आएगी

मौके पर जो हाथ न आये
तन्हाई में पास न आये
सब छूटे तो साथ न आये
व्यर्थ है वो गर मिल भी जाये
———————————————————–
मार छैनी मूरत बने, माटी आपहि लेवे स्वरुप
भेद ना जाने मूरख है, पहचाने ना गुण धूप

————————————————————
पकड़ते पकड़ते कब छूट जाती है
मनाते मनाते कब रूठ जाती है
सिमटते सिमटते कब टूट जाती है
ज़िन्दगी, पता नहीं चलता
————————————————————-
डूबता था जब में, तो किसी को उतराता ना लगा
जो उतर आया हूँ तो कहते हैं, डूबते ही कब थे
————————————————————-
एक मुश्त आसमां ही तो माँगा था ए आसमां वाले
किस्मत मेरी संवर जाती जहाँ तेरा न घट जाता

जहाँ खुशियों का चाहा था ग़म समंदर का दे दिया
संग दिल है तू और हैं बद-नियत तेरे जहाँ वाले
————————————————————-
दिल को फिर अरमानों के महल में खोने देते हैं
जो ना हुआ ना सही जो हो सकता है उसे होने देते हैं
कई रातों को जाग जाग कर कुरेदा है जिन जख्मों को
उनको कुछ एक रात तन्हाई में सोने देते हैं
—————————————————————-
हर मर्ज़ की एक दवा है
हर दर्द के लिए दुआ है
तड़प खुद अपना इलाज़ है
रोग कुछ ऐसा हुआ है

शोहरत मिल जाएगी हमको
मोहब्बत हो जाएगी हमको
देर कमबख्त ने इतनी लगा दी
हसरत क्या बाकी रह जाएगी हमको
—————————————————————–

I am waiting for love
my lines are all corny
my thoughts are all porny
but I know beneath it all
is sitting stoutly
my lust for love

———————————————————————————-
तब दिमाग पे शुबहा था, अब दिल की दिक्कतें हैं
लगेगी इक उम्र उबरने में, बड़ी गहरी नादानी है
———————————————————————————-

कितनी दूर निकल आया हूँ

कितनी दूर चला आया हूँ

———————————————————————————–

चिड़ियाघर में हमने इस बार एक अजीब परिंदा देखा है
खुद उड़ कर कहीं जाता ही नहीं, कहता है हम पे फंदा है

——————————————————-

I reached nowhere
by doing things right
even doing them wrong
couldn’t fix them alright

The courage boat…

Down the dusty road
amidst gust
the self proclaimed
rusty bloke
tramples the track
wet by sweat
of the petrified legend
with molten heart

the shining abode
sends a chariot
with morning gleam
as charioteer
to fetch the rider
of courage boat
smiling as if kissing the beam
he looks away
to face the wind with open arms
as if to usurp
all of it in his palms
he turns and quirks
as messanger watches by
humbled am I for I am called by
the gateway of heaven
alas I seek
the passage to hell
for thats where
journey is pleasant
than the destination………………………………………………………..

Can you…

Did U See Me Myth Love,
In The Middle Of Your Road,
Which U Happened To passesth By,
Leaving me at end of Myth Road

Did U feel me Myth Love
In the heat of morning sun,
When it touched your quivering lips,
U kissed them and blesseth away,

Did U Know It Myth Love
When I hugged U With The Wind
U Let It Enter In Ur Room
When U Blew the Curtain Away

Can U Sense me Myth Love
Smiling at You From these lines,
Smile if you can sense me myth love..
Smile if You cant and u will
See Me smiling myth Love !!!

A passage through heart…

my heart
is a maze of caves
its dark, its long
its criss crossed
many live there
and i dont know
many visit it
and dont stay
many more are there
and homage they pay

i am wandering in them
tracing lanes
finding remnants
of what once was
a synagogue…
and met several faces
floating in thin air
they smiled at me
i replied back
and they vanished
from where they came,
thin air..

i kept moving
one to another,
it became
dim to darker,
with eack step
it grew starker
and I had never
been there before
who all live there
i was not so sure
along i saw
a glitter of light
what happened to be
a pond of love
and i sat beside
wondering,
who filled it,
and sudenly i felt
i am too tired,
and i fell asleep
over the corner
dreaming of faces
i had never met before,
they were playing
in a small field
and calling upon me
to join them in it
as i sat over the fence,
i raised my small hand
they were far off
they raised their hand
it was still short
the hands stretched
to hold one-another
and we kept getting thinner
till it all turned into smoke
and i woke up
to reality to find
it was all just that
smoke of thin air
and i felt
pang somewhere
near chest,
but strangely
all across my face
all i had
was a serene smile……………

Sublime love…

As I close my eyes
and wander in the alter world
I see many a images
I see stars
and I see them smiling
I see them moving
across the sky,
to greet one other
there I see a broken star
and then another
and then many more
and one of them
passed so close by
I could hear it whisper
I came down for you dear
and so have all others

I sitting along the beach
threw a pebble in the calm sea
and it gobbled it with glee
and then came a mighty wave
and almost wet my feet
as it splattered a few drops
across my face which slid
through my ears as if to say
thankyou my friend thankyou
for I was so hungry for so long

It was such a chill outside
I sitting close to fireplace
blew a gust in it
and it usurped as if dancing
enchanted with holy delight
there were ambers all around
and they made a purring sound
we burn ourselves for you
and its sure worth every pound
and they whished into ashes

Amazing things happen
when I think of you…………..

Where do the fish go…

The water was still, with no waves around
Where have all the fish gone, it wondered
Have they left for the high sea
Or they all died a slow death for good
For they just disturbed the tranquility
It feels so serene, with no fish around
No fish, no waves, no nothingness
Each moment is an eternity
With each like a new one

And then came an eagle,
Hovering over the surface
Fluttering its wings, giving out a shrill cry
The stillness froze, in time and in nothingness
It became even more still, even more quiet
With its surface being out in open
As if covering with fear of being touched upon
Of losing its virginity all over again
It shivered it simmered and it looked up in trepidation
As the eagle looked down rolled its eyes
Then it looked up and away in horizon
Took a dip, touched the surface
Just deep enough to wet its feet
Shook its head, fluttered the wings
And took a flight far away
Leaving behind a small eddy

The eddy wondered, where did it come from
Whose child is it, who is to feed it
Where does it go, what does it grow into
It looked inward and found nothing
It looked up and there was nothingness
It shook itself up and rolled around
It pounced to left and then bounced to right
It stretched to its periphery then shrunk to the centre
It went up towards the sky and then down to the bottom
And soon it found many a small more
Of its own creation of its own beings
Eddies flowing around rolling and shaking
Expanding and shrinking, hitting and bouncing
And then there were they the hidden fish
Out of slumber in the morning twilight
One for each eddy one with each eddy
And they all came together in a large eddy
And it rose above as it rose together
And the eagle gave a shrill cry
this time in trepidation
fluttering its wings and covering its feet
As water came above to wet its feet again
