मैं रोया तो नहीं …


मौसम के अलग अलग मिज़ाज़ मे.
ज़िंदगी के हर उतार चढ़ाव मे.
औरों के घाव को मरहम लगते हुए.
और खुद के घाव पे नमक छिड़कते हुए.
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
दिल ऐसा टूटा की टुकड़े भी ना मिले.

राहों मे अंधेरों का सामना करते हुए.
औरों के दुखों को मिटाते हुए.
खुद को खेलने का प्रयोगशाला बनाते हुए.
सब धोखों को झेलते हुए.
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
बनावटी इस दुनिया मे हम अकेले पर गये.

शोर के इस वातावरण मे.
ज़िंदगी ने ज़हर ऐसा उगला.
मौत भी मुँह मोर कर चली गयी.
पर उस वक़्त मैं ना पिघला.
आँखों की लालिमा करती है कुछ इशारे.
दफ़ना दो उन ख्वाबों को जो नहीं हैं हमारे.
आवाज़ों के बाज़ारों मे खामोशी पहचानता कोई नहीं.
जो होना था वो हो गया बस अब और नहीं.
रह गया उस मंज़र और इस मंज़र मैं, अकेला.
चलो बनता हू इक दुनिया जो होगा रंगीला.
पर उस वक़्त…
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
हम दिल पर पत्थर रख , किसी और दिशा चल दिए.

Trying to paint the paper…


Living in the piece of a paper.
I am trying to paint the paper.
Left in the curse of time.
I am trying to build a new time.
Shattered with the sudden storm.
I was left in a beach of thorn.
The pain was unbearable and immense.
Like someone put an iron rod in the chest.
Tears came and heart wrenched.
Wondered how I got the bloody drench.

Shame acts and broken trust continued.
I stood and fought till I can continue.
During the midst of day and night.
Life gave me tremendous fight.
Sacrificed everything which I had.
Only thing left was the time which was bad.
I lost the battle with a brutal end.
Tried a lot to avoid that end.

Loved the fact that I still survived.
Even though I had no reason to survive.
I left the world which was never mine.
Building a new world which will be mine.
Life is such of twisted events.
Tackling them is prominent.
It takes time to forget and forgive.
Hence life must be lived.
Some time is required to move on.
As…
Living in the piece of a paper.
I am trying to paint the paper.

Hi to Good Bye…


You came suddenly in my life.
Giving me a reason to survive.
I always enjoyed your presence.
Neither of us gave a sign of negligence.
I always scared to express my feelings.
Losing you will have no meaning.
You are the strength for mine.
Either in day or night.
You are mine.

Your expression always offers a proposal.
Not aware whether is this my proposal?
I have accepted you from bottom of my heart.
Praying always I should not get hurt.
Your lips always murmurs to say.
Let it come out, please convey.
You are the strength of mine.
Either in day or night.
You are mine.

One day I said “Hi.”
You ran away blinking your eyes.
Murmuring something you came back.
Suddenly said me ,“Good Bye.”
I was shocked and surprised.
As there was no reason to rise.
Neither me nor you thought to express.
That landed both becoming depressed.
Your eyes were watery which I never desired.
For you I always cried.
I never came to know what was my deed.
From inside and outside.
I did bleed.
Thought of having an infinite journey.
Again I landed in a tragedy.
Time changed.
You were the strength of mine.
But now you are not mine.
“Hi” turning into “Good Bye.”
Heart cried and tears fell.
Without you.
How can I be well?

leave-alone

Waiting for arrival…



Indian Bloggers

Heart wrenched, soul cried.
Tried to normalize but it was a failed try.
You left me in the time when I needed you the most.
Leaving the heart in pain I cried for you the most.
You and I both were happy with each other.
A sudden storm separated each other.
The happiness which I saw on your face.
That was enough for me to win all the race.
The joy coming from your heart and face is still refreshed.
With me you were always happy and fresh.

I remember the day when you kissed my soul.
Burning all the memories which were foul.
I saw you the day when we separated.
Your eyes were watery and face was red.
Unable to control myself, my tears became bloody red.
I understand you are not well.
Praying for you so that all should get well.
I feel your presence and you feel the same.
Unaware why god is playing this game.
I know you are in residing in disguise.
Without you dear how can I move and rise.
Hugging you in distress.
I will burn all your problems and stress.
Hoping for that day to come when you smile again.
Burning all the problems and pain.
You are willing to be with me forever.
I am waiting for your arrival.
My arms are stretched to catch you forever.
I am just waiting for your arrival.
Waiting for arrival…

Igniting the flame of serenity…


World has changed a lot.
Always seems to have a violent plot.
The notion of humanity is no more.
Day by day violence is increasing more.
People wonder what is their deed.
Inside and outside they did bleed.
Bloods are flowing like water.
Always I see is humans getting shattered.
Tears spread across the globe.
I am thinking is their any scope.
World is getting terrorized.
Is violence really required?

No human wants to be in vain.
But everyone is residing in pain.
Both mentally and physically.
All are losing hope slowly.
Darkness spread all around the world.
They are disturbing the peaceful world.
Bombings and murders are common.
I wonder whether things will be normal.
We have to come together for peace.
Rather than sending people to rest in peace.
The question still arise.
Is violence really required?

Come all.
We will join hands.
In order to curb violence.
Let’s make the inner voice louder and shouter.
The only wish we all have is peace.
We want peace.
Let’s make a better world.
With no violence.
Where all of us are in path of humanity.
Igniting the flame of serenity.
Let’s make a world.
Where everyone should be down to gravity.
Igniting the flame of serenity.
Let’s make a better world for our future generations.
Where all should have a better collaboration.
Let’s come and join hands.
For the sake and glory of humanity.
By igniting the flame of serenity.
Igniting the flame of serenity.
