An Incomplete Poem


One day I thought of writing a poem.
After a big gap of many months.
Thought came and so do words.
I tried to pen down my words.
Mind was full of feelings and emotions.
I was trying to portray my inner situation.
Blurred in the midst of day and night.
I was writing the journey of my life.

Moving the pen slowly on the paper.
I started to describe my feelings on paper.
The journey which was belligerent and haunted.
Made me to write which needs to be trusted.
I gave my all effort to depict the suffering.
Slowly tears came while recalling.
During the course of the ups and downs.
I did have nervous breakdown.
Relationships became trading port.
I was left without any support.
Recalling those memoirs while writing.
My hand and brain were shivering.
I took a break for a while.
Hoping to smile while I write.

Couple of hours passed and I sat again to write.
Moving into deep of my heart to portray that drive.
Powerful emotions and strong words were chosen.
Unable to phrase the sentence, the poem was left open.
The poem was incomplete and I was shocked.
Made me to realize, I entered the writer’s block.
Feelings, emotions and scenes everything I have selected.
The poem which I started to write never completed.
I look towards my literary piece of work.
Hoping to complete that work.
As I started to write and complete the poem.
Made me to feel, it’s an incomplete poem.

The presence of diamond…


The thing which rests with you while you often ignore.
The people whom you often neglect while you explore.
The shower blessed by someone from his wishes.
And the thorny path turned into flowers from his wishes.
During the course of the journey one often forgets the importance of a gem.
Making the course slowly and reaching no end.
It is the ultimate truth which is often neglected.
As the presence of diamond is felt when it gets separated.

When you walk in the path which is smooth.
Prepared by someone with whom you were often rude.
Motivating you at each and every step.
At the end, he was not able to make his own step.
You enjoyed every moment and success  from the front end.
Ultimately leaving the one who was responsible from the back end.
It is the ultimate truth which is often neglected.
As the presence of diamond is felt when it gets separated.

Remember the journey of zero to hero.
Leaving the one alone as he became zero.
Can’t convey his pain when you were in disguise.
Sacrficing everything in order to make you rise.
Pushing you forward every time for your sake.
Making him lonely forever.
Wondered whether your presence was fake?
It is the ultimate truth which is often neglected.
As the presence of diamond is felt when it gets separated.

सच्चे दिल से |


कल तुम्हे देखा था मैने |
कुछ इस नज़र से |
जैसे चाहने लगा हूँ तुम्हे |
सच्चे दिल से |
तुम्हारे चेहरे से झलकती मासूमियत |
मुझे खींचती है तुम्हारी ओर |
तुम्हारे होठों का सिसकना |
मुझे ले जाता है तुम्हारी ओर |
भूल जाता हूँ मैं सारे ग़म |
मैं और तुम अब बन जाए “हम” |

चेहरे पे असमंजस है ,
पर दिल मे कुछ और है |
ज़बान कुछ कहती है ,
पर आँखों मे कुछ और ही है |
साफ झलकता है प्यार ,
तुम्हारी आँखों से |
होठों की कश्मकश वो बताती है,
जो महसूस करती हो तुम…
अपने दिल की धड़कनो मे |

जब तुम पास रहती हो,
अछा लगता है |
दूर जाने की बात करके तुम,
मुझे क्यूँ सताती हो |
रूको कहो अपने दिल की |
सुन लो कुछ…
मेरे भी दिल की |
तुम्हारी नज़र कहती है,
मैं तुम्हारा हूँ |
मैं कहता हूँ की…
तुम मेरी हो |
तुम चाहती हो इस कदर से |
पर रोकती हो दिल को अपनी ज़ुबान से |
अब खेलना बंद करो |
कहना है जो सो कह दो |
रोको न खुद को मुझसे |
क्यूंकी…
चाहता हूँ मैं तुम्हे |
सच्चे दिल से…
सच्चे दिल से…
