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.

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 .. 🙂

mera Man :)

Man mere tu udd na jaa kahin,
Aaj muze teri zaroorat hai,
Anjaano se Dil na laga kahin,
Anth me bikhar jana toh,
Teri purani aadat hai …!!!
Man mere tu udd na jaa kahin,
Aaj muze teri zaroorat hai,
Kar ibaadat apno ki tu,
Chand lamhon ki Khushiyon ke liye,
Bana na tutne wale rishtein kahin,
Yeh toh dagar ke binch ki aafat hai..!!!
Man mere tu udd na jaa kahin,
Aaj muze teri zaroorat hai,
Teri najdikiyan hi Meri nawajish hai,
Tera teher jaana hi Meri khwaish hai.!!!
Man mere tu udd na ja kahin
Aaj mujhe teri zaroorat hai,
Madhoshiyon mei gum
Na ho jana tu kahin
Meri badmashiyon mei teri mehfil hai,
Udd na uss aasman mei
Jisme raunakein hi nahi
Ruk ja teher jaa ki teri
Manzil hai yahin aur kahin nahi..!!!

PS:. A special thanks to Sameera for adding last stanza . In this post, most of the Urdu words are used, feel free to ask me the meaning of any Urdu word, if you’re not understood… !!!

Smile :)

Let the heart breaks,

I will rise again,
Let the storm comes,
I will survive again,
I know,
My heart is like a tree,
If it’s leaves falls in Autumn,
It will get afresh again in Spring.!!!
That’s why I chose to love this world,
That’s why I chose to smile,

My love is as free as wind, you are just away to feel it.. !!!
