Sound…..

If only sound could travel through nothingness,
We would have known,
The pain the Moon feels,
Distance would never reduce,
Between her and the Earth,
Maybe that’s why its craters,
Tell a story,
Perennial, endless, infinite,
Sound can be underrated sometimes……

पारियों की रानी…. 

कभी हस के भी मिला करो,
इतना भी  गुरूर ठीक नहीं,
सताया इतना करो,
जितना बर्दाश्त हो सके,
पत्थर की मूरत अक्सर टूट जाती है,
नेक हो जो इरादे ही सही,
मजबूर ना कीजिए हमें ए पारियों की रानी,
वरना फरिश्ते हम भी नहीं….

आशियाना…. 

कभी आईना देखा,
तो कभी झाँका गेहराइयों मैं,
आसमानों की मुलायम पर्दों मैं देखा,
तो कभी समुन्दर के अनंत मैं,
घर ढूंढ रहा था मैं,
ना जाने कहाँ,
ना जाने कब,
अक्स जो तेरा गिरा था मुझ पर,
वो सर्द किसी रात मैं,
ना जाने कैसे,
ना जाने कब,
इस काफिर को अपना आशियाना मिल गया……

Death is a new beginning….. 

The heat had started melting off the skin, 
As the flames fed on her bones, 
The memories, photographs and the days so good, 
Mortal is body, maybe the mind, 
Play games in times likes these, 
You become strong, 
Hold off some tears, 
Maybe they are in a better place, 
As dust covers up what’s left, 
And you try to find someone that existed till now, 
Maybe the body is mortal, 
Or the universe unsettled, 
How else would the Sun, 
Die to see, 
Earth Be born again, 
Everyday……

When I am lost….. In you…. 

Can you please hook this button up? 
I cannot reach it. 
She said while he tied his laces. 
Sure. 
As he came closer to her. 
I wish I could stay like this forever. 
Looking at you and nothing else. 
She pinched him. 
What happened to you. 
Where were you lost. 
Nothing. I was just remembering the way to the venue.
