You are a star

The bright blue sky
and the mirage below
I sat and pondered
but it made me mellow.
looking around
not a soul in sight
lost in your thoughts
I saw some light
twinkling and shining
you shone like a star
That moment in time
I tried to hold you tight
But the star as you were
No one being can own
Meant for many
to brighten and smile
I look up and wonder
and still find you all mine
At any moment in time
I find you there
Hiding behind that sun
or peeping through clouds
Sharing my smiles
and wiping my tears
I sit back and ponder
and swell up with pride

All this and more...

There are times someone upsets you and you end up getting angry.

Someone might say cruel words that will hurt you and make you very sad.

Sometimes unwise decisions are made and you are disappointed.

Somebody's actions make you to worry about them.

And There can be moments where someone will make you cry

Someday unforgivable mistakes will be made by someone

There will be lies told to you and your trust will be tested.

A small conversation might end up breaking your heart.

All this will happen - repeatedly.

There will be struggles and there will be challenges.
There will be arguments and there will be discussions.
There will be pain and there will be sorrows.

But with all this there will also be love.
A feeling so strong that each time it will help you deal with all of those and forget them and move on. Its Love which makes us strive for a happier life.
Its love which makes us make those extra efforts each day.
Hold on to that... Let Life take its own course.

Aakhen khuli
par dikhayi na de kuch
Na aayi jo kab se...
uss neend se Jaagun
Saans chali ja rahi hai
par zindagi ruki hai
honth hilte to hein
par koi awaaz na nikli
Dil mein ik boj sa hai
par koi aasun na chalke
sawaal mann mein bahut hein
jawaab milte nahin par..
aawaazein bahut hein yahan pe
sirf khamoshi sunun mein
adhura sa lagta sab kuch yahan pe
kis rah pe nikul
anjaani hein raahein...

Uss Pal...

कहीं .. उस  बीच के पल में
सोयी आँखों  और  जागती सुबह के बीच में
जब ख़्वाब सच लगते हैं
सुबह की पहली रौशनी में
बंद आखों पे मुस्कुराते हुए
उस पल की तेह में
जब दिल यह दुआ मांगे
बढ़ जाऊं आगे मैं
अपनी ही अनगिनत यादों से
जहाँ हर ख्याल हो आज़ाद
न हो अकेलेपन की उलझन
न हो ख़ामोशी से परेशानी
ऐ पल ले चल मुझे वहां
जहाँ बंद अाखों के ख़्वाब
आँख खुलते ही सच बन जाते हैं


Somewhere in the middle of that moment
between Sleepy eyes and waking up morning
With the first ray at dawn
When the dreams seem true
They smile at the eyelids.
In between the layers of that moment
This heart prays
To go far ahead
From all the Countless memories
Where every thought is free
No skepticism of loneliness
and Silence is not a problem
O moment, take me there..
Dreams lying on eyelids
Become truth on waking up.

Empty Randomness

Poking an empty heart
And everything…
Pieces held together
But… Falling apart was easier
I believed I knew
I knew how it feels
To cry in the shower
To fall apart in silence
For everything to hurt
Tiredness none can heal
“Blame on” – said a voice
“self inflicted” – said a falling part
Confusion and confidence
Hoping and coping
Existing and Breathing
Living and trying
Choice – had I none
Slow drowning
Into the black hole
Never to come out
What is true happiness
And what is little less sad

…And to Emptiness

Granted? Or not?

Lead me to anywhere
and I will follow you blindly
Take me for a ride
and I will still love you deeply
Make a fool of me
and I will forgive you
Get upset with me
and I will mend my ways
Say you don't need me
and I will move away quietly
Push me silently
and I might not return

Ek Muskurahat

Tune haq yaad dilaya muskurane ka,
Ab kaisa yeh shaunk hai tera apna chehra chupane ka...
Iss Doobte ko bacha laya tu kinaare pe,
Ab mujhe intezaar hai tere khud ke muskurane ko

तूने हक़ याद दिलाया मुझे मुस्कुराने का
अब कैसा यह शौंक है तेरा अपना ही चेहरा छुपाने का
इस डूबते को बचा लाया तू किनारे पे
अब मुझे इंतज़ार है तेरे खुद के मुस्कुराने का
