Girl in Red and Guy in Black XI




What should I write that has not been written?

What should I say that has not been said?

Should I say that that I love you without any limits?

Or should I say that I’ll be with you as long as this life permits?


What should I promise that has not been promised?

Should I swear to hold you like this forever?

Or should I cross my heart to leave you never?


What should I bring you that has never been brought?

Do you wish for those classic moons and stars?

Or do you want me to win those brutal wars?


But as always, the truth is still the same

As always, I am still talking to your name

As always, I don’t know what feelings to frame

As always, I have a destiny to blame


What can I do to make this note travel?

Can I shout in a voice that could possibly touch your heart?

Or can I ask the winds to play my part?


Perhaps, a postal stamp will strike my deal

Or maybe I should call you to talk over the meal 

But as always, where do I find the courage that I need

As always, another page goes down, maybe someday you'll read

    1. I wanted it to be gender neutral, kind of phase we all go through... that's why didn't give any other heading...the moon, stars and wars has a bit of boy inclination..haha but it's 21 century girls can win wars for guys now isn't it? thanks for reading and commenting

मेरी कहानी बिखर गयी

खोले डाइयरी के कुछ पुराने पन्ने अभी
और मेरी कहानी बिखर गयी

कुछ सपने गिरे कवर के छेद से
जैसे रिहा हुए हों क़ैद से

मिली लाश कुछ वादों की वहाँ
ना जाने कब किए थे खुदसे और कहाँ

कुछ पन्नो बाद वो बे-अदब ‘मैं’ भी निकला
ना डर था जिससे और ना कोई परवाह

बे-अदब ‘मैं’ मुझसे पूछता है
ये यहाँ एक अजीब सा शोर क्यूँ है
तेरी सोच में आगे निकालने की होड़ क्यूँ है
ये क्या तेरी आम सी ज़िंदगी है
ये कौन है तू
ये क्या बन गया है तू

समझ ए बे-अदब
नासमझ है इसीलिए तो हराम है तू
दुनिए के कितने कायदों से अंजान है तू
कुछ सलीखा सीख ले जीने का अब तो
नुस्खे ले कामयाबी के अब तो

किन कायदों की बात करता है तू
किन वादों की बात करता है तू
देख खुद को आईनो मे कभी
क्या था और क्या है अब तू

सुन ओ क़ायदे पढ़ने वाले
सुन ओ सलीखे सिखाने वाले
तू कोई मसखरा तो नहीँ
क्योंकि तू ‘मैं’ तो नहीं हो सकता

कहाँ गयी है मेरी वो बेपरवाही
कहाँ है मेरा वो…

'ठा से' चुप करवाया फिर उसे
कवर, पन्नो और ड्रॉयर में दबाया फिर उसे

बंद किए डाइयरी के कुछ पुराने पन्ने अभी
और मेरी कहानी दफ़्न हुई

Zinda Hu Abhi

चल थोड़ी आज बेपरवाही कर लें
कुछ देर के लिए ज़रा आंखें बंद कर लें

चल देखें एक सुबह को शाम बनते हुए
कुछ आते-जाते लोग और कुछ पंछी उड़ते हुए

कुछ वक़्त मिले तो सुनूं साँसों को अपनी
हो जाए इनके आने जाने की भी तस्सली

कुछ देर ग़ुमान करूँ फिर ज़िंदा होने का
गिरवी हूँ तो क्या अभी मोहलत है थोड़ी  

कुछ देर ना डर, न ख्वाईश, न चाह  ना मक़सद और ना ज़रुरत हो तेरी
कुछ पल, कुछ गंटे तो बस यहाँ शख्सियत हो मेरी

Mom You’ll Always Be Around

‘Moving’-A small six letter word but evokes a dozen different emotions, and all at once. It brings the excitement of going to a new place, the fun of meeting new people, it also has the curiosity of learning new things and somewhere it has the pain of leaving things behind. Things that you have known for long enough and some people who just don’t seem to get out of the head. It’s difficult to say for all but for a majority, we never grow big enough, mature enough not to miss mom. In fact in a new country, she’s the one who can help beat the blues and get along with the people. From the universal mom’s diary, following 5 lessons may be handy in settling at a new place.
Listen from your heart
Expectations of the boyfriend, attitude of co-workers, weather, money, the lady residing down the road, the black dog, crops this year and god knows what, we all have something to say about everything. Most of us want to be listened or more importantly to be understood. It doesn’t matter where you a…
