Haar ya jeeth?

Kaun jeetha, kaun haara is khEl mein
Kya bathaayen raahi?

Jisme jeethna namunkin hai aur haarna wafaa hai
Ise kaise suljhaayen raahi?

Jo dooba isme usko choot kahaan hai bhaai?
Jisme marne par bhi jeeth hai,  usme hum kaise jeeyen humraahi?

Pyaar khuda hai toh, woh mushkil kyoon hai raahi?
Dard mein mar mite toh kyaa? Humne kya paya,  kya khoya hai bhaai?

Humne toh pyaar hi jathaaya
Aur kuch bhi toh naahi?
Sanam bewafa nikle, ab is darde dil ko hum kyaa samjhaayen raahi?

गुज़र न जाए यह पल

आपकी खफा में भी अनोखा अंदाज़ है
इन आसुओं में भी एक अजीब सा मज़ा है

खफा होकर इन लम्हों को यूँ गवारा न कीजिये
मोहबत का आलम है कुछ तो कदर किया कीजिये

बीत जाएंगे पल, फिर आये न आये!
ऐक बार ही सही, इस दिल पर भी ऐतबार कर लीजिये

Block, A building block!!

Blocks can hold the hands of the clocks,
Can it make the time stop though?

O wise mind,  Be wise and kind.
Turn the same hard blocks into building blocks, thus fiercely vow..

To unwind and shine,
To blow the immense pain
Only to joyfully and simply grow!

Dooriyaan

Unke saath bithaaye hue woh chand lamhe,
Un lamhon se judi apni apni khoobsoorat kahAniyAn!

Laathi hain muskuraahat chehre par aaj bhi woh nishaaniyaan,
Zindagi tho kya,  moath mein bhi jeelenge lekar un yaadon ki parchaayiyaan!!

Unki aankhon ki woh geharaayiyaan,
Jinme doobkar mit gayi tanhaayiyaan!

Na dil se uthra kabhi woh chehra,
Usne kiya har waqt aakhon par pehara!

Yeh Mohabat tho nakhatam honewaali saraab hai
Bin piye nasha chad jaaye aisi ajab sharaab hai

Ey chaand unse miloge tho yeh zaroor kehana,
Ab mushkil hai unse yoon door rehana!

The Threshold


Beyond the threshold of pain,
Why urge me, time and again?

Now I know,  yet why this dally?
Deliver me to that, which lasts gaily!

Mirage, aren't you?  Tricking the poor me endlessly !
I seek to  travel beyond earnestly and fiercely

O my poor little mind,  learn this to implore.
Deepen your misery or joy until there is simply no more!


Hold yourself still in that space forever,
For here is from where you may then seek never!

Chaahe sitam ho ya pyaar,
Is dil ne sirf unhipe kiya aethbaar!

Chaahe dhoop ho ya bahaar,
Is dhadkan ne unhi ko bulaaya baar baar!

Judaai hi tho hai mohabat ka taraana,
Jeethe jee marjaana,  yahi hai asli mohabat ka fasaana!

Desire

Aah Desire!!

You lure me unto deceit
 I choose you to defeat.

I chase you to savour,
Life's transient flavour.

Do you offer pleasure?
Nay, it is all smeared to suffer!

I know now your games of fervour
All I seek is to go beyond you forever!

Alas!! I now wonder!!
To transcend, is it just yet another desire?!!!
