Butchered - II

Trunk to Branches to Leaves to Stump
Nothing remaining, just butchered
Reason unknown
Motive known
But who cares? Do you?
Only after the last tree has been cut down,
Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you find,
That money cannot be eaten...

Butchered; if they could scream, no one would have been so cavalier about cutting them down

Crumpled page

An aspiring professional liar of truths—myself;
A fledgling poet—sits as the light dims
Thoughts flickering
Like flowers growing in proximity,
Perhaps like weeds that choked the other's light.

Why so serious?
Why so gloomy?
A question which light asks;
Why everything so deep?
And why is everyone into it?

Lighten up a bit...
The blue light would soon fade,
Rise up your chin,
To pride
To love
To hate..

Why so many thoughts?
Why so many words?
Why so many reasons?
Does all this give security?
Does all this make it right?

So many words so many feelings,
and yes so much crap!!
None of it is real
None of it brings joy.

The lines are flat upon the crumpled page,
The darkness is arising...
Light is fading...

As I write
I loose the demons in my head,
Delaying them,
Just letting the light take over,
Me and my existence...

When it rains

I despise rain at times
But somehow today consider it my best friend
Walking across these deserted grounds,
as water pours all over me...
All over the greenry around...
Making it memorable...

When the rain drops hit my face,
I pulled myself away from thoughts,
And gazed at the water falling from the sky...

The sky crying; a line which I used to say,
But now I know; it doesn't cry...
It helps us cover up our tears,
Help the green leaf enrich their roots,
Spreading fresh oxygen all around...

When it rains, I feel my heart still beating...
When it rains, I feel the nature maximizing its strength...
When it rains, I hear to nobody except the water dripping;
Tip tip tip...

When it rains, I live another life within the scent
which fills the air,
Clearing away all the toxins,
All the evil around...
Making it fresh,
Making it beautiful...

When it rains,
I feel like life's a river,
And I'm the current breaking through...

Dil jalega to zamane may ujala hoga
Husn zarron ka sitaron se nirala hoga

Kaun jane ye mohabbat ki saza hai ke sila
Ham kinare pe bhi pahunche to kinara na mila
Bujh gaya chand kisi dard bhare dil ki tarah
Rat ka rang abhi aur bhi kala hoga

The heart would burn again, as the sun sets...
Another heart break,
Another sad ending,
Yes another untold story...
The one I'll tell,
And the one you'll always remember...

The Puddle Perspective

As I stare into this water puddle
A wisp, a shadow of the familiar
Surfaces, wavering...

Life is strange ain't it?
The reflected realm resonates purpose
And design for which differs
Creating an urge to view a different perspective...

I could see right up,
Rather I choose to see in this little puddle,
I choose so, to make it upside down,
To see that am not always right,
To know that there is always another side of life,
An understanding which I wish I had understood...

Gazing into this strange reflection,
I see images beckoning, calling
Unable to drown this deep dejection...
Yet I stare... useless, meaningless
I vent my mind...

Looking at this water...
Which thought all it had was the power of reflecton,
It never knew it's hidden power: the power of perfection...
A true reflection... and another perspective...

Broken Wings

With broken wings and feathers torn.
A tear in each blind eye,
Both legs disjointed, skin is flaming...
And I attempt to fly.
Looking below, to feel for your presence.
I'm hoping to find you there...
Beginning to fall, dying in flight,
I go whizzing past your ear,
See me?
Hear me?
Do you even care?
In the earth I shed my sins..
Screaming in the fire...
Soon I shall emerge again,
Glorious, from the pyre...
Your bitter cold, it cannot freeze me...
Yes am a bastard,
But my blazing flames will encompass you
And for evermore, together we shall be...

The light began to dim...
Light music starts,
Feet tapping slowly,
as the strings of guitar vibrate...
Sound of camera clicking...
Suddenly the drums shouted in agape,
Like the sound of thunder...
With it lights flood the stage...
Filling the empty space with their roar,
Creating a die for atmosphere...
Every string a different color, a different voice...

Lucid Dream

Captivating me
with the endless teasing
twinkle in my eyes
the shadows dance
as i follow me

Dhalta Sooraj Dheke
Aur Hawa chuke Guzre
Jalwa Woh Nayab tha
Asal tha Yake Khwab tha

Standing before the mirror,
Is it a dream
A lucid dream
I guess
Lurking around me
memories of my temptations,
all mesmerizing

I want you
I want it
I want the substance
The substance which is mesmerizing me

Kuch bhi jo accha lage
Aur milay bhi
Zaroori to nahi
Sach hai per
hai Ajeeb

The shadows of the mirror
The mirror which I stand infront of
still taunt
still hurt
still enlighten my desires
arousing me ever so gently
tickling my senses

Ik andheri si raat
Aur kuch kadmoon ki chhap
Alam ki thi yeh kya baat
Jaise Andhekhi sa ghaat

Confused I am
And will remain
Until the dawning of a newly found hour
Shadows would fade
As I keep on looking at the mirror
the person gazing back at me,
in the mirror remains.
Lurking around me
memories of my temptations,
My lucid dream....

Chori Chori

Ae way mein chori chori teray naal laa layyan akhaan way
Mein chori chori...
Duniya tou jakhaan tay mein duniya
Jakhan tay mein pyar tera rakhan
Way mein chori chori teray naal laa layyan akhan way


Without anyone knowing about it, I locked my eyes with you
Very quietly, very discreetly...
I will keep this love hidden from the rest of this world
Nevertheless, the love I have for you is safe
Without anyone knowing about it, I locked my eyes with you
And fell in Love
