You

You are that rain, 

Which dampens me up with sticky pains,

But the desire of your feel is such insane,

That forces me everytime to be standing out and facing up; feeling the first few drops of acid…

Drenching my heart heavily in that solicitous lane…

Life cycle

Stepping in the Past:-

Fingers numb,

Flashbacks run,

Tears roll up,

Words shiver,

Suppressing sobs,

Choking throat,

Lips stretch,

And bow down.

Like the flag,

Of a defeated army,

In the life’s battleground.

 

Stepping out the past:-

Fingers work,

Emotions numb,

Tired eyes,

Heated words of fight,

Suppressing anger,

Clearing throat,

Lips stretch,

And show up smile.

Hiding the hatred,

Like the mask,

People wear,

In the life’s battleground.

 

Hoping for the future:-

Fingers join; direct to God,

Wishes go up,

Spark in eyes,

Words of demand,

Melody from throat,

But shallow voice,

Lips stretch,

And make up excuse.

For wacky deeds all throughout,

Like the Cuckoo,

That appears sweet,

But kills the baby Crows,

For selfish motifs,

That grow in the little brow.

इन्सान

तरक्की और तकनीक मेंं,

इस मुकाम पर पहुंचने के बाद भी…

इन्सान की समझ सिर्फ इतनी है कि-

उसे जानवर बोल दो तो बुरा मान जाता है,

और शेर बोल दो तो खुश हो जाता है!

A human

“तुम इन्सान नहीं जानवर हो!”

ये सुन के अब सोचना पड़़ता है,

कि यहां आज के इंसान को ऊंचा उठाने कि कोशिश की है,

या फिर से जानवर के बेजुबां होने का फायदा उठाने कि कोशिश की है?

 

“You are even worse than an animal”

This phrase compels me to think

Whether it has been said to lift up the character to today’s human.

Or as always just to take up the profit of the dumbstruck of animals?

 Reality is:-

It is sad that we all know the truth.

Still we dare to compare animals with us.

Leaving aside all promises
Which were to be kept
Ignoring, neglecting all her cries
But tell me; What finally did you get?

 

And finally you left…
Dooming the conjuncture of two souls to demise.
Proving your words an aria of theft,
To please your evil desires of pervert pride.
But tell me; What finally did you get?

 

And finally you left…
Leaving her to die on ventilator with sighs,
Ever wondered how much she was depressed, distressed?
Never; As the villany in you was so very high!
Now tell me, reaching the age of 60-‘the age of memories’,.                                      Other than null and void what will you get?

जीवनसाथी

आसमां के शून्य में, रंग भरोगे मेरे साथ?

धरती के मण्डल पे, जीवन लिखोगे मेरे साथ?

वायु कि अभिन्नता सा, प्रतीक बनोगे मेरे साथ?

अग्नि के ताप सा, मेरे मान के रक्षक बन, रहोगे मेरे साथ?

जल की शीतलता और पारदर्शता का सार ले, अविरल लय से बहोगे मेरे साथ?

हर दुखः में भी मेरे स्वामि से पहले मेरे मित्र बनकर आगे बढ़ोगे मेरे साथ?

और इसी तरह सही मायनों में जीवनसाथी बन ज़िन्दगी का स्वाद चखोगे मेरे साथ?
