Fallen leaves.

I sit by my window
looking at the silhouette
of the withering tree.
Foreshadowing how life
is falling like the leaves from
the tree; withering away.
And the heap of leaves
are like memoirs of my life.
The night is chilly and the
frost is peeling through
my skin like a ghost
from my past.
Piercing through my skin,
making me numb and asking
me to slowly close my eyes.
And sleep in the wake of
the long wintery night.

A journey of Love.

When your journey began, you were whole.
When love arrived for the first time, happiness came with it.
So much happiness that you couldn’t handle it.
Life became joyous and beautiful.
And then love left one day.
They said,”you’ll find someone better”.
But they didn’t understand one thing.
When you were no longer with someone, you ended up leaving a part of you with them. Something that you’ll never be able to share with someone else.
And in the end, you are not whole.

Battle

There is a never ending battle going on inside of me!
A battle ridden with countless sacrifices and graves
A battle that I might never return from!
Will I be deemed a martyr?

Why so broken?

How do the broken ones heal?
Where do they go to find peace?
When will the suffering end?
How do they become whole again?
Is the pain all worth it?
Where do we find the fix?
Is this unquestionable fate of the broken?
What is the point to all of this?
Or is it something pointless

Broken.

I feel like a broken glass,
Breaking apart each day
Piece by piece.
I’ve been floating in the void,
With the void pulling me in
Deeper and deeper.
Sadness has become a friend of mine,
Hugging me, holding me tighter and kissing me harder.
Numbness is a part of me,
Creeping inside, extending its roots and making me hollow.

And I am withering away......

Khushi aur gum.

Life mein khushi aur gum time dekh k nahi aate.
Ek pal ki der lagti hai saalo ki khushiyo ko gum mein badalne ko.
Aur ek ye gum hai jo kabhi jaata hi nahi.
To jab khushiya tumhare darwaaze pe dastak de,
Usse andar aane do, gale se laga lo, usse jee bhar k nihar lo.
Aur jab vo jaye, darwaaze ko khula chodh do.
Uss khaalipan ko mehsoos karo.
Aur ummeed karo ki usse khule darwaaze pe khushiya ek aur baar dastak de.
Kyuki gum toh zindagi ka ek permanent resident tarah hai.
Ayega aur reh jayega.

Complicated.

What if he loves you and she doesn’t want to commit?
Would you accept that kind of love?

What if she keeps friendzoning him despite his immense love for her?
Would you accept that kind of love?

What if she’ll be by his side, always, but one day walks away
Should he even love?

What if he just wants to be sure about his future, thus is asking for tag
Why should he suffer?

What if only she gets to decide fate of their relationship?
Should she just leave him hanging?

And one day, after years of parting, he sees her, there is numbness inside of him but tears in his eyes and instantaneous chains of regret in his heart.
I don’t think he will call her.

His eyes will follow her th...

मेरे कमरे की खिड़की से जो
आसमान नज़र आता है मुझे ,
वो तुम्हें भी दिखता होगा
तुम्हारे कमरे की खिड़की से....

बस यही सोच कर अपनी
हर बात उस आसमान से
कह देती हूँ कि वो
बता देगा तुम्हें ।

जब तुम खिड़की से
बाहर आसमान को
देखते हो तो तुम्हारा
अक्स उतर आता है,
उसमें आइने की तरह
जो मुझे मेरी खिड़की
से नज़र आ जाता है....

वो चाँद जो तुम्हें
और मुझे एक साथ
नजर आता है
अक्सर कहता है मुझसे,
तेरा चाँद बहुत
तन्हा है वहाँ.....

वो हवाएँ, जो तुम्हें
छू कर आती हैं
मेरे पास ....
मचल उठती है,
खिड़की से अंदर आने को
अजीब सी खुशबू
होती है उनमें
हौले से कह जाती हैं
मेरे कानों
तुम्हारा हाल-ए-दिल
वो जो तुम न कह पाए कभी
और मैं बस मुस्कुरा
देती हूँ...........

Hurt.

I don’t know what to do, for I am lost.
Lost in the void that is inside of me.

I plug the earphones in and shut the world out.
All those noises and rantings have no meaning.

I am hurting but it doesn’t bleed, no cuts or wounds.
Just the pain and anguish that never goes away.

I have cave myself in and never want to go out.
Out has sunshine and hope and dreams.

I don’t want to chase butterflies, I want to drown.
Drown in the deepest and darkest part, where no one can find me.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Just finished a beautiful web series called “Broken but beautiful”. And the intro song has some amazing lyrics. Here it goes-

Yeh kya hua
Kuch pata na chala

Kyun haadsa ban gaya silsila

Tukdo mein tum the
Tukdo mein main bhi
Tukde bane toh hum bane

Yeh dil zindagi se
Khafa ho chala tha
Jisey phir se jeene ke
bahaane tum bane

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Time and Chaos.

As the Time Lord sits on his throne, he looks at a broken man in the chains grovelling at his feet.

He thought to himself,’How pitiful?’ and spits at his face

He raised his eyebrow and says,”do you know how many times have you died?”

“Every time you broke a little and more when I restored your mind” he smirked.

“Once a great warrior, fought through hell, rose to the podium of gods and now, reduced to rags”, he roared.

Just then through the shadow, a godly yet ominous voice soared,” and why must the one who is captured must be broken?”

“Is it to ensure the order and peace? Is it to take away his free will?” Ensured the mysterious figure.

“Chaos Lord? I thought you wer...

Ek Jaam.

Har shaam ek jaam zeher ka
Tum pilati rahi
Mein pita raha
Har darf har ghadi
Nashe mein choor
Teri parchai ko mein takta raha
Issi khayal mein ki aayege tu
Aayege tu kisi roz ek baar phir
Meri har shaam vo jaam pita raha.

Why I write?

It’s for me,
It’s for relaxation of my mind,
It’s for rejuvenation of my soul,
It’s for making the broken me, whole again.

So yes, it’s only for me.

Living Dead.

This was when I was a working as a journalist in a newspaper. I was continuously chasing stories, so I met a lot of people and went to a lot of places in the search.

Amongst that the accident cases were something that I frequently got to see. Rash driving cases, hit-and-run cases, without helmet driving cases, drunk driving, there were a lot of them. Frankly, after seeing so many injured bruised people and dead bodies, I thought I was ready to take it on. But I guess I was wrong.

It was probably one of the last cases I had to report.
It was about 8 Pm and I got a call from one of my source that there has been an accident. I went to the site and found it to be very crowded. I...

Love, till it lasts...

Through out all the fall ins and fall outs,
I have learnt one thing.

When love comes your way,
Welcome it, cherish it, spread your arms and hold it.

When love goes away from you,
Open the door, let it free, let it walk away.

But keep the door open, for someone might enter to stay.

But those who don’t, stop running behind them, it’s not worth it. If they wanted to stay they would.

Lamhe

Vo jo lamhe the na,
Jisme mein aur tum raha karte the,
Ab un lamho mein sirf main rehta hu,
Tum to guzar chuki ho uss shaam ki tarah,
Jo ab kabhi laut kar nahi aayege.
Aur mein bhula bisra uss shaam ka intezaar karta reh jaunga.
Gile takiyo mein sar rakh k so jaunga.

When a song describes exactly how you feel—

All I want is nothing more
To hear you knocking at my door

'Cause if I could see your face once more

I could die as a happy man I'm sure

When you said your last goodbye

I died a little bit inside
I lay in tears in bed all night
Alone without you by my side

But If you loved me

Why did you leave me....

Hazaaro ki bheed mein kho jaau aisi fitrat nahi hai meri,
Akela hi chal du toh harz kya hai

Kal ki toh baat thi jab saare kaynaat mere saath thi,
Aaj tanha hi chal du toh harz kya hai

Yoon toh yaadon k sahare mein behta chala jaa raha tha,
Par aaj ajnabi ban chal du toh harz kya hai

Mere paas sawaal bhi kayi the aur unke jawaab bhi nahi the,
Phir bhi anjaan ban chal du toh harz kya hai

The reality today is like the broken pieces of a glass.
A glass which once gave you a reflection of your true self.
No matter how much you look at it, it stays broken.
And you can’t help but let your heart sink.

तू कही दूर सितारों के बीच छुपकर मुझे देख रही थी.
पर तुझतक पहुंच पाऊ, इतनी हिम्मत कहा थी मुझमे.
उन घने काले बादलो ने आसमान को जैसे निगल लिया था.
और फिर न सितारे दिखाई दिए न तू दिखी.
खो गयी थी तू लाखो की भीड़ में, गुम सी हो गयी थी.
में खड़ा रहा उन गरजते बरसते बादलो के निचे
तुझे ढूंढ़ते, तलाशते, तेरी एक झलक को तरसते हुए.
पर तू कही दिखी नहीं।

क्या पता आज भी तू कही दूर छिपकर मुझे देख रही हो.
क्या पता।।

Why did I start this, why did I write?
I always thought that there was so much inside of me that I wanted to say.
But that wasn't the reason. I started writing because of you.
Because when I did, We were friends and you made me happy.
I was happiest in the longest time of my life and I wanted to let go of the sadness, so that I could be happy with you.
I wanted to pour my sadness over the paper and tear them down so that I could let go.
And after all these years of being together and letting go.
You are again one of the reason I want to write.
I want to put all our memories over the paper and tear them down so that I could let you go.

But frankly,
I miss you, a lot.
Even today when I se...

The Search

As I'm growing older, I've realized that I know so much less about myself now. I feel that I've developed a strong bond with the world and I've grown apart from myself.

These days I don't understand a lot of my actions, I don't understand most of my feelings. I feel lost and I feel that I am wandering aimlessly, unaware about my destination. It feels like I am on a constant roller coaster of emotions.

and yet, I constantly seek to find myself amongst everyone I know. Everyone I confide in, I know I am searching for something within them or searching for the person I am when I am in their presence. When I'm alone I feel like I need company and when I'm with them, I wish to run aw...
