OH RIVER…….

Oh river
You natural gypsey

You flow n flow tirelessly
It’s everything you want to see
Rolling over rocks
Meandering through pebbles
The eternal flirt
Not the one to settle
Youthful Rapids
When just born
Fighting with the mountains
Brewing up storms
Wisdom and calmness
Befriend you with age
When in the arms of the plains
You seek solace
The flow becomes steady
Not stagnant at any stage
The demeanour seemingly stoic
Curb the free will n it riles up in rage

Oh river
You natural gypsey

I wish I could be like you
On the move constantly
Attachments far and few
Freedom to be who I am
No laws on free will
My choice to form Rapids
Or to stay calm n still
The world seems like a dam
Restricting free flow
It’s time to break the walls
Maybe it’s time to let go

Tired of this world
It’s notions hypocritical n skewed
Oh river
You natural gypsey
Come take me away with you ……

We Are All The Same….

different-races-Dr.-Rosedale3-300x250

 

Yes! we are all the same, 

we are all human 

just different notions 

fed by social potions 

 

Yes! we are all the same 

we are all human

prone to mustakes

betting life on high stakes 

 

Yes! we are all the same 

we are all human 

with questions galore

yet believing in senseless folklore 

 

Yes! we are all the same 

we are all human 

conforming to norms 

while trapped in one form 

 

Yes! we are all the same 

we are all human 

born free

yet bound to destiny 

 

Yes! we are all the same

we are all human 

a compilation of deceit

a mirage of emotions 

 

Yes! we are all the same 

we re all human 

a rainbow beyond seven

striving for a gateway to heaven 

 

Yes! we are all the same

we are all human 

knowing never what we want

wanting never what we have 

 

Yes! we are all the same 

we are all human 

killing for pleasure; a sadistic need

still justifying every deed 

 

Yes! we are all the same 

we are all human 

judging at one time 

the next you are forgiven 

 

Yes! we are all the same

we are all human 

prone to follies

followed by sorry’s

misjudgements galore

a saint or a whore 

to live life or to follow encore 

a question,whose answer

settled at the core 

 

Yes! we are all the same 

we are all human 

good or bad

nasty or sad

we are all figuring life

either as a mistress or a wife 

 

Yes! we are all the same

we are all human 

the same happiness

the same pains

go die and get reborn 

if you want those extra gains 

 

But till you live

remember 

we are all human 

we are all the same 

playing charades with life

an interesting game 

yet with death 

if ever your turn came 

there really is no winner of the game…….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nazrein….

Wo nazrein jo har waqt,

sirf ghum ke nazmein sunati thi… 

tumhari rooh se hoke raabta, 

aaj kal ashqon ko bohot chain se sulatien hain ….

 

Na shikan aati hai paishaani pe

na hain palko ke kone mayoos se

khultien hain toh sirf hoton se judi wo lakeerain

ranjishein band darwazoon pe sirf dastak detin reh jaatin hain…..

 

Wo nazrein jo har waqt,

sirf ghum ke nazmein sunati thi… 

tumhari rooh se hoke raabta, 

aaj kal ashqon ko bohot chain se sulatien hain ….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RAAT……

magic-night-new-moon_1600x1200_639-standard

Aaj kal humari chchat ke neeche, 

ek mehmaan rehne aai hai…. 

“Log hume raat bulate hai” ye keh kar mohtarma ne 

apni pehchaan karai hai 

heero se jadi, ek kaali si kambal 

apni sandook mai bhar laai hai….

kabhi uspe aur heere bikherti, 

kabhu udhed deti sari silai hai ….

 

Aaj Kal humari chchat ke neeche, 

ek mehmaan rehne aai hai…. 

 

Kabhi dhundh ki tarah lapet ke daraya, 

kabhi heere wali kambal mai samet ke

lori bhi sunai hai…..

 

Aaj Kal humari chchat ke neeche,

ek mehmaan rehne aai hai….

 

Isse mehboob kahoo ya humdard, 

ghum mai

tanhayee mai 

ya jab jhaanka dil ki gehraii mai 

har sama bas isi ki parchaii hai 

 

Aaj kal humari chchat ke neeche,

ek mehmaan rehne aai hai.. 

 

Shor bhari din ki zindagi, 

shaam mai doobi jhoothi yaariya,

is kashm kash mai phasi rooh ko 

khamoshi ke do jaam pilane aai hai…. 

 

“Log hume raat bulate hai”

ye keh kar mohtarma ne apni pehchaan karai hai 

Aaj kal humari chchat ke neeche, 

ek mehmaan rehne aai hai ……

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I Miss You …..

 

image

It ended abruptly
Just as I was about to kiss you
Dream transitioned to reality
Rays seeped into the eyes
empty pillow by my beside
Flushed cheeks,aching needs
Sinful memories of last night ….

Under the sheets, body arched
Like dry land
Thirsty n parched
A craving sets in again
To be …..
Touched, loved
N driven insane
Taken to the highs n lows
Of passion n pain
To be used, abused
Tossed n turned
Kissed, caressed
Soaked in desire
With lust burnt…

But it ended abruptly
Just as I was about to kiss you
Dream transitioned to reality
N I realised how much
I miss you……

FREEDOM……

image

 

Ugh! “They thought collectively……. “It’s claustrophobic”
“dude! I hate this stuffiness” one of them said…..
“Ur saying as if it’s me who asks for it”..came a sarcastic retort ….
“Listen you shut up, don’t try and act smart with me…. You are the smaller one as it is…”
“oh ! Plleeaaaaaseee such a lame comparison….small or big what would you be without me anyways…. Who would even look at you, infact you’d be ugly… Almost like a freak…as it is its so hot…. Don’t add on to it by getting into a heated argument with me…and why is there so much motion suddenly!!!
“Oh god! oh no! …..Now we have to run!! And that too when it’s already soo stuffy!! Dammit!”
Irritation was suddenly ruling the moment….. And the pace picked up bringing its best friend sweat along with it ….
“Dude! Have you ever wondered what would complete freedom be like?? Imagine if we were running with the winds right now… We won’t have had to deal with this annoying sweat!” ……
.”Oye! Oye! Dare you call me annoying…you are annoying me by saying this… It’s not my hobby to trickle aimlessly alright! You slow down I stop!”
” alright! Alrigjt! Calm down ” said the bigger one ..” We are all doing our jobs here…you go trickle, turn the taste of the skin into that of a pickle”…. They both burst out laughing….
“LAME!!” Thought sweat and chose to trickle on….
“Don’t you think we should stop now!! It’s hurting…” Said one of them
“I wish we could….” And suddenly they stopped….. “Phew” …that was a collective reaction …
It was back to stillness….
Then came a spray and the waft and then a fragrance…..
” mmmmmmmm! Someone’s got a date today!!!” The smaller one said,soaking in the perfume …..
“Oh hello there!” Said the perfume moving in gracefully like a ballerina …. How have you been?
” how do we look?” Came the reply in chorus
” err uncomfortable?” She said settling herself comfortably between them

They looked at each other but refrained from
Commenting because the perfume was some respite …… She felt nice and oh she definitely smelt nice…..
But she won’t stay for long either …she d fade away …. Gradually merging with another fragrance just like the seasons …. Change…. But they… They’d still remain there … Seemingly in captivity ..,..

” oh! Oh! I sense something ” said one of them …. And snap ….. They suddenly felt free ……. “Wow!!!” They said unanimously and then ” OUCH” said one of them ……. ” Owwwww” squealed the other …… “Wtf” said both of them but the sound was softer …. Because their squeals seemed to have been muffled by a pair of hands…..
Damn that hurt !!! Said the smaller one ….. Yeah this one surely has seen us for the first time said the bigger one …. Despite the pain , that made them laugh …….
“Yet you know this still isn’t as bad as being suffocated ….. Even though I feel I m a piece of dough being kneaded”……”ah! Well I am being bitten if that makes you feel better”……. whispered the other one …..” Your tone surely does not sound complaining” retorted the smaller one ….,

And suddenly it all stopped …,… Almost like the lull post a storm …they looked at each other … Wondering is it all over …. Yet dreading the captivity again
” oh god please please let’s just be free for a night” they both prayed …… And it seems God heard them … Because they were suddenly greeted by soft muslin ….. By far their best friend or rather lover … ” hello!!” They greeted him their voices suddenly Unexplainably chirpy …… ” hey!” He said, sliding in slowly his soft caress turning them on like nothing else could …..” Even his hey is so sexy” whispered one of them to another ….. The other one just silently nodded, revelling the moment …… Both of them knew finally they got their night of freedom…… Their night of no constraints ……. Their night of just being……. Their night of no captivity ….. Their night of no bra!!!

The two breasts finally got their night … With their right to be exactly who they were!!!

Friendship….

Effortless laughter

And pure joy
No before no after
Just moments
Just the present
Like a book
Read chapter by chapter

That’s friendship
An unusual bond
Can be so pure
Can be maligned
Can be seamless
And sometimes manipulatively aligned
Purely by choice
Sometimes regretted
But Always designed
Written with love
With trust signed
A non documented document
An ocean if emotions
Only felt
Can’t be defined

That’s friendship
Sacrosanct
Yet taken for granted
Selfless
Yet warranted
A structure
Standing on loyalty
Delicately balanced
Like a pyramid of cards
Your hands can protect it
One finger
Can reduce it to shards

That’s friendship
A connect
Purely for our own sake
Not legalised
Not socialised
Entirely left on us
To make
Or to break
Our social freedom to choose
A medium to let loose
Can come with constrains
And emotional strains
The ultimate source of happiness
And immense pain

That’s friendship
So uncomplicated when from the heart
Twisted when connived by the brain
Sustained with boundaries of innocence
And not barbed with wires of
Loss and gain

That’s friendship
A choice you make
Don’t trivialise it
With logic
And portrayals so fake
Cherish it cz it’s crystal
With experiences and memories
Vintage when handled
With callousness it breaks
Because in the end that’s what
You are left with
When you finish the film called life
With no second takes ……..

Love…..

To feel is to love
To see is to love
To absorb is to love
To sense is to love
To capture the essence is to love
To touch is to love
To breathe is to love
To seethe is to love
To let go is love
To avenge is love
Seeking revenge is love
To hold on is love
To move on is love
To shed tears is love
Fake smiles is love
White lies is love
A heartbreaking cry is love

Don’t complicate it

Happiness is love
Ecstasy is love
Passion is love
Aggression is love
Persuasion is love
Assertion is love
Even perversion is love …..
It’s actually quite simple

We look for multiple answers
To a million questions
We
Weigh love
Rate love
Cage love
Judge love
Analyse love
Rationalise love
Agonise love
Filtrate love

Without realising
That in actuality ….

Just to live is to love …….

The Song That Remained Unsung

image

With every beat

Resonates a song
A song that remains unsung
That song was a moment
A curious, eager, yearning to live moment
But it’s song remained unsung
Pulled down by past
Over shadowed by future
It’s song remained unsung
It was gone, as soon as it was born
A flash of light, a ray of hope,
The only element of life that you could grope
But you lost it!
Because you didn’t hum it, you didn’t sing it and it was just a song that remained unsung …..

AN EXPLORER’S SOUL

imageTo wander on roads unseen
Long, straight or meandering
Destinations ever changing
Journey the only constant
Married to spontaneity
Affair with adventure
A hunger to be surprised at every juncture
Casual acquaintances
Long lasting friendships
Bank filled with memories
Forever n ever of hardships
Freedom as food
Making your own rules
Abhorring conformity
Abandoning stability
Finding life in moments
Revealing in future’s uncertainties
An outcaste
Fitting no where
Alien to sense of belonging
Scattered here, there , everywhere

Yet upon finding its niche
Seems complete and whole

The story of an explorer’s soul …..
