kabhi kabhi hamari zindgi,
kuch iss tarah mode leti hai,
ki mano hamari duniya
tham si jaati hai,
fir din hoo yah shaam,
kisiki yaad me kho jaana
hamari adat si ban jaati hai.
dhire dhire chehare par alag
hi noor chaa jaata hai,
aur laboo pe hamesha
muskaan nazar aati hai,
milon dur nazar ane wale
chand-Taare abb aaspas hii
mandrane lagte hai,
maano hamari Black & White
duniya colorful ban jaati hai,
Dil me saalon see pal rahi nafrat
yun titali ki tarah udd jaati hai,
Aur Dil me reh jaata hai toh bas,……………….
aur yahi pyaar ki taaqat,
hamen sau andhera
so ladhna sikhati hai,
aur ek achha insaan
banakar zindgi
jeena sikhati hai .. !

The story never ends :)

we live under the same Sky,
we weep under the same Sky,
but we belong
to different planets,
Perhaps I know,
I am your favourite star
you like to gaze every night,
you spend each night sitting in your window, gazing at me

& waiting for me to fall,
But I know, even if I fall for you,
you won’t catch me & neither I will reach you,
your home resides in the field of sugarcane,
Winter is falling high there,
And I am standing out my naked body shivering,
If I try to reach you, I will have to make slits over my body,
And I know I won’t survive
until I reach you,
So, I decided not to fall
But I can’t stop gazing at you,
And perhaps this is how our story begins & continues but never ends,
We will remain as strangers with hearts together..!!

Photograph :)

we are screens apart,
digitalised though,
I make room for your message
and let loneliness go,
I hear your voice in calls,
I stalk your blogs too,
you look cute in the pink top
and beautiful in the green,
but my favourite is the blue moon photograph
you captured on our trip,
it feels like heaven to be
with you in it,
So, Whenever I see it,
I close my eyes and feel
those adorable moments
we had spent together,
The cooling wind and
soothing noise of waves,
our names drawn on the sand
lined by the castle of sand and
stones we made,
the lake glistening with water
carry your reflection in blue,
as beautiful as moon we saw last night,
sometimes when I think of you,
I look at moon and my empty wallet,
the moon shines in wain and my wallet carry your pain,
in a single photograph
where you and I are stood together,
even though we were miles apart.

Zindagi :)

wo bhi Kya din the,

jab alarm ke jagah,

maa nind se jagati thi,

Nind khulnepar bhi aakhe

lagakar naatak Karne me

bhi badi maja aati thi..!

subah ghar se niklo school,

suraj ki roshni saath hoti thi

aur pedo paudho see baat hoti thi.. !

Na kis baat ki chinta thi,

Na Dil me kuch dar tha,

khelo kudo masti karo,

padhai karke top bhi karo,

bas itni si zindagi hoti thi.!!

magar abb waqt ke sath-sath

zindagi bhi badal gayi hai,

kuch paane ki na tho chahat hai,

Nahi kuch khone ka dar,

mano sab kuch rukh sa gaya hai,

dhire-dhire duniya sath chod rahi hai,

chalo achha hi hai,

kismat samaj ke gale lagate hai,

bahut de diye University ke exam,

Ab kuch aur zindagi ke hi sahi …!!!!

Guzaarish :)

Kabhi Kabhi lagta hai,
likhun toh kyu likhun,
kya likhane se meri
taqdeer badal jaaegi,
kya likhane se meri haton
ki lakire badal jaaegi,
Aye khuda…,
tu hai toh kyun hai,
kya tuze meri Dil ki ruswayi
nazar nahi aati,
kya tuze meri minnate
sunaai nahi deti,
lshq pane ki chahat karu
toh kyun karu,
kya usse manzil mil paaegi,
Chand khwab dekhun
toh kyun dekhu,
kya woh pure ho paaenge,
kya duniya ka mei akela
insaan hun joh har kadam
par thokare kha raha hai,
kya duniya ka har insaan
kati patang ki tarah hona
jiske khule asmaan
mei udne ke alawa kuch
armaan na ho?
Aye khuda,
tuzse shikayat karne toh bahut
sawal hai Dil me,
agar guzaarish karna munasib
hai, toh muze iss kaabil bana,
anjaam kuch bhi ho aant me,
magar me apni zindgi ki
Jung khud ladh sakun !!

PS: This is my second Urdu poetry. I hope you like it .. 🙂

Complexity :)

I’m in chaos these days,
listening my unfavorite songs,
the gloomy face doesn’t want to see in the mirror,
maybe some things are responsible for that, which were never expected to happen in past,
sometimes it haunts me deep down,
sometimes I see my soul dancing on mountains of happiness,
that’s how life works for me continuously,
And I’m taking uncertain swings endlessly..!!!

Longing away ( Post- 99.8 )

They met at an unknown place,

Where everyone was strange,

Away from their ex-one,

They considered being out of range,

And that’s where they became friends,

In a hope to have some change,

Which was faded away from them…!!

They started sharing every pain,

By keeping the witness,

friendship was it’s name ...!!!!

They called themselves best friends,

By making a promise to last it until the end,

They never fought before,

Until played once a game,

Coz reveling their past was its name..!!!

Now, they tried knowing more,

Then, all colors appeared,

Which were faded before,

Again question.

Again answers.

Again misunderstandings,

Again doubt.

Again tears rolling down on cheeks,

Finally, they have shown themselves to be broken hearts….,


They both took ‘U’ turn &..,

Left each other forever,

Coz they always wanted to be

Longing away from the pain,

And that was the end,

That’s where they failed,

And destiny was blamed…!!!

Healthy Pastels

I’d forgot to post it on International yoga day. So, just thought to repost it again.

Walk on the grass when
sun just wakes up
Take all the energy and
drink your green cup
Let the sweat droplets
fall like rain
Give away comfort and
take some pain
Eat white and green and red
Less oil and more crystals
Balance the work and get up
from the bed
Paint life with healthy pastels…!!!

I was invited by Prashsti patel to write a post related to healthy lifestyle. She was kind enough to post my poem on her blog. The link to the post is given below and the poem is posted here and there as well.. HEALTHY PASTELS
Thank you Prashasti. It was a wonderful experience.

For you, with you :)

I know,
one day
I will be gone from this world
Perhaps will fade into something
behind the horizon,
behind the darkest cloud or
behind the highest mountains
And you won’t be able to see me,
I wish for you
Since you will be able to feel me
Even if I am gone
I wish and I know
That you will find me
in every frail morning,
in every dark night,
I wish to be your moon,
Because even though it is invisible during day
It never fails to rise and shine again
I wish to be your rain
whenever you feel barren
Frozen lakes will remind you of me
And life will rewind all our memories
I just wish to be your virtual world,
That will exist in your heart
And shine in your eyes
Somehow, somewhere
I wish to live for you, within you.

Depression ( Post 100th )

Oh Dear.
how miserable it feels,
when you’re struggling to heal,
You always held the pain,
like a cloud holds the rain,


you’ve lost your mind control,
by the stress, you always used to hold..!!
Oh Dear.
how miserable it feels.
you always cared for the world,


you can’t even utter single word..!!!
sitting beside you in the hospital,
gazing at your flowing blood,
my tears are rolling like a flood..!!
Oh Dear…
how miserable it feels,
you never shared your pain,
that’s made you weak,
hence.. you’re still sick..!!!
you’re still lying on the bed,
it keeps making my eyes red,

I can’t see you in the pain,
you’re my strength,
you’re my friend,
you’re my crime partner..!!!
Oh Dear.
you don’t scare
for you, I’m always there,
coz …

I can’t see you in the pain,
I can’t see you in the pain,
I can’t see you in the pain…!!!
